If it is the GC then at least I'll have a nice new PSU. I really hope it works though.
It might not be the PSU, you may have a faulty bios. Problem is, if you flash it and then it dont work and somehow you cant get it flashed back, then warranty is poof UNLESS you talk to your cards tech support first and ask them if they want you to try it. In any event, you should backup your current bios on the card.
