I got the Corsair 600M PSU, and it's working great so far.

Unfortunately, the problem persists. The card's performing well in its benchmarks though, getting a minimum of 150 FPS with 8x MSAA.

I called EVGA customer support earlier today, and they suggested that it was probably the power supply beginning to fail.

Update: I did a clean installation of the new drivers, but the problem persists.

Still on the lookout for reasonably-priced RAM.

I'm thinking about SLI'ing my old QuadroFX 3700 with a GTX 660. I'm new to SLI, so how should I set it up?

I went to Microcenter yesterday, and the 4770k and 3770k were the same price, so I figured I might as well get the newer one. It also had a really nice combo deal that saved me over $30 when I bought...
