650 should be fine, but no theres no way to software test your PSU.

You need to read the lines directly.

I would suggest seeing as there is no ideal solution, one way to help, download speedfan if you dont have it, it tends to be pretty accurate with 3/5/12 volt rail info, run ATI tools 3D artifact scanner at the same time speedfan is open, the aretifact scanner is known to be one of the most denmanding 3D app around, if you like you could also run a background proggie to really stress, check your rails, if one or more of them go constantly below say 11.85 on the +12V, and so on and so forth then thats probably your problem, post the results so we can see.

Take a pic of speedfan before stressing your PC, then use ATI Tool's fuzzy cube and take a pic afterwards, what are the differences?

That is a nice score, my x1950pro OC'd get's about 5400's in 3dMark06, but it still does great for me! Those cards are great for sure!

That's pretty stable, I'd say if it was changing by .10 or more then there might be a problem, but a couple hundredths shouldn't hurt anything.

Well that is a droop, but it's still above 12.0v so I don't know how much it would be worth worrying about. Hard saying if the PSU is the culprit of your stuttering issue or not. Has it stuttered lately? Do these tests when it is and see what you get. There may be something there...

after all the tests i was running, it started to studder about half as much. i dont get it. like right now it is not studdering at all. i do agree, i need to run these test while it is studdering.. as far as the PSU. i think that i have plenty of power. i ran the extreme power supply calculator and it says with my set up all i need to run it is 482watts...
side note.... i talked to gigabyte tonight and they are sending my MOBO back. they side that the only problem they found with the MOBO was that there was a falty bios casueing no boot up.. anyways cant wait to get my MOBO back. it is a very sweet board..have a good weekend. off to play S.T.A.L.K.E.R.:D

That's pretty stable, I'd say if it was changing by .10 or more then there might be a problem, but a couple hundredths shouldn't hurt anything.
Fluctuation isn't a problem until around 11.5v on a high stress system so its definatly fine.

A struggling PSU will give you BSOD's and restarts, not flickers.

What "stuttering"?

Like pause......... play........ pause.... play?


Thats either heat or GPU drivers. Most likely GPU heat. Some Ti4200's did this with >42.xx detonators.

He said it's kind of a flicker/stutter if I recall. But maybe you can help in this issue, I've had him check a lot of things out, and haven't found anything out that could be the cause...
