    Ok so i went from a 7300le to a 7800gt and it needs more power then the 300watt psu in my system. So i went and found another 300watt that i am using to power the card itself, but i am still seeing lines everynow and then. Does this mean the a seperate 300watt psu for the card alone isnt good enough?
