Ok, still at stock. So that rules that out.

On relatively rare occasions, the PSU can be the culprit - especially if overclocking with a lower quality unit. So, I'm relieved to see that you have a fairly decent PSU (it's not a great unit, but still). I'm also relieved that no overclocking has been done. I admit that I was worried about all of this due to the video card failure.

This is all I think I can contribute for now.

You say not great PSU why? Also When My video card went, a friend is giving me 2 GTX 260 to run in SLI will I still be Ok?
Absolutely. Two GTX 260s won't stress this PSU at all. All that would really be needed for that is a 650W power supply.

Here's why I am apprehensive about this PSU, particularly Thermaltake TR2 units:

On Thermaltake PSUs

(This is a an article on Overclock.net, which is actually my stomping grounds. The author of this article is their resident PSU expert)

Here is a thread I found on OCN: How is this PSU? Thermaltake Black Widow W0319RU 850W

The guy who replied named "Shub" is another PSU expert.

Another one from Shub (direct link to his reply): Corsair TX750V2 vs Thermaltake Black Widow W0319RU 850W

Regardless, I have a few questions:
  1. How did you determine that the video card died? What video card was it?
  2. Have you had any new BSODs since removing the 1.8V memory?
  3. Have you been able to flash the motherboard's BIOS?

I have a real passion for helping people pick new PSUs, so I'll always be here for you if you build a new rig. Of course, there is Overclock.net too - but I don't want to take too much away from SevenForums.
