I sent in a standard RMA and uploaded the invoice.

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 tried the RAM in different slots, and even tried the DIMM from my brother's computer. The problem still persists, so I don't think it's a RAM problem.

I also heard it was a RAM problem, so I ran the memory diagnostic tool. It didn't detect any problems.

I currently only have one RAM stick in right now (loaned the other to my brother), so I'll...

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...

I'm getting the 3770K over the 3570K as I'll be doing video editing on this computer, so the hyperthreading will help speed up rendering.

It's a 500W power supply, which should be enough. I may get a more powerful one in the future if I need to.

Assuming I don't really care about USB 3.0, could I just get another ATX motherboard, and a CPU and RAM for it, and keep the case and all other components?

And what exactly is preventing my...

That's the thing I'm worried about--it seems to think 100 MB is enough to run, say, Minecraft, when Minecraft's gonna want at least 256 MB of VRAM to run well.

I'd just like it to allocate more system RAM to use as video RAM, because as you can tell by the video, it's not allocating nearly enough automatically.
