I have a Xion 600watt SLI -ready PSU. I thought about that too. My box doesnt heat up that much (its a full tower but air cooled) but Im wondering if
the HDD didnt just over heat at some point and the card was just the final straw. The card is huge, its the XFX edition to me, seems to have a
bigger heatsink/fan setup than EVGA's similar cad.
Ive already lined up a few replacement parts over at tigerdirect and if it is my drive, im putting the order in.
here are the specs (maybe minus the HDD):
Corsair Dominator Memory Airflow Fan
XFX GeForce 680i LT SLI Motherboard CPU Bundle - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Processor 2.40GHz OEM
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500GB Hard Drive - 7200, 8MB, Serial ATA-300, OEM
Vantec 3.5" Aluminum Hard Drive Cooler
