Default Re: Official "I just got my GeForce GTX 260 or 280" thread

It's kinda freak, but my computer keeps rebooting and I think it's my new GTX260 overheating but don't know what to do to fix it... I have tried put it in 2 fan cooling the up and down side of the VGA and nothing

PC Spec:
Intel Core2Duo 2.2
MSI P45 Neo
2GB Ram DDR3 Dual Channel Kingston
550w default PSU
It sounds more like a PSU issue. What brand is it. Just because it says 550 watts doesn't mean it has enough power for to run the GTX.
Asus Rampage IV Extreme Black Edition | Intel 4930k | SS Phasechange | 16GB Corsair Platinum DDR3 1866 | Asus GTX680 x2 SLI | Corsair AX1200 Watt PSU | Lian-Li PC-8NWX | Intel 520 120Gb SSD x2 | Samsung S27A950D 27" 120Hz | HP ZR24w 24" S-IPS x3 Nvidia Surround @6000x1200 | Xonar Essence STX
