Windows 7: Installed new 4890 GFX Card

Installed new 4890 GFX Card

Hey so guys im new to this, but pretty much

I recently upgraded my HIS 3870 to a Gigabyte 4890 GFX card
And my computer was working fine
but when i had that 4890 in it got up to the "Starting Windows" screen and just stops there.
But would load in Safe mode.

So what im wondering, is do you think its the fact i have a 500w PSU or something else?

Cheers

Hmm I wouldn't go for a Thermaltake PSU if I were you to be honest, they have quite a bad rep.

For $10 more, you could pick this PSU:

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

That's one solid PSU right there.
