Just a little note. You are asking a lot from that power supply.

The system is in a mini-ITX case and this is the most powerful SFX power supply available right now. If you go to [H]ard Forums, there are many, many people using this power supply with higher-end builds (GTX680s, mechanical / spindle hard drives, etc.).

If that is the the best power supply for you little case so be it. I was going by the fact that your video card recommends a quality power supply of 500W minimum.
If you will post the thread on that website I will gladly read it.

I have read about 3 pages in that post. It states that many use that power supply with your card as long as they don't use things like Furmark or Prime 95 to load the system it works. It doesn't much mater if the highest power and quality you can fit in your case is that power supply. The only reason I posted my question was when a system like yours has a high demand on it a bigger better power supply would be better. If they don't make one yours will have to do. Thanks for the website.

So all the issues I'm having could be tied to not having enough juice to run the hardware? I did uninstall BOINC a week ago and the BSODs did seem to lessen in frequency.

Does BOINC use NVIDIA GPUs to help with computations? I've always let BOINC use up at most 50% of my CPU.

I guess what I'm trying to say nicely is you have limited yourself because of your choice of power supply and case. Your power supply has 1 single 12v rail at 37 amps. Your video card will require about half of that 37 amps. To me SilverSone is middle of the road power supply. That is if the power supply works up to the standards the manufacture claims. This to me means that to do any work with this computer you are going to be working this power supply very hard creating heat in a very small case that will have problems dissipating the heat. You have a lot of nice hard ware that is being hand cuffed by the case and power supply. This might not solve your problem but it will help your system to work at it's potential. I have found some manufactures of that nVidia card recommend 600W power supplies. It all depends who makes it.
Testing high end hardware with a low end power supply makes absolutely no sense to me. Of course this is my opinion and suggestions.

Time to buy a new case and PSU then. It needs to be small though. SilverStone does have an ITX case that comes w/ a 600W PSU. Model is SG08. Not as nice to look at IMHO and that is a factor since the PC is sitting on top of my desk.

Hopefully all of this really is just the result of not having enough power.

Is using ITX your only option. Their are many quality brands that look very nice on a desk top. My 600T look good in my opinion. I guess looks is in the eye of the beholder.

I can go micro ATX, but I'd really like a more compact case. I do have a spare SilverStone SG03. That's the most compact micro ATX case I could find. I can shove any ATX PSU into there. I have a spare 650W ATX PSU as well w/ a single 57A 12V rail.

MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSOD during the night
I woke up to find Windows saying it closed unexpectedly with a BSOD. I am not sure what caused it, though WhoCrashed said MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. Besides crashing, the BSOD, I think, also messed up Steam's file in a recognized way. Dunno if that helps. Attached is the zip with requirements by the...
