i pulled 1 stick of ram out (2 left now) and it boots right in. so i assume it's a ram problem.

Keep in mind the stick of RAM you pulled accounted for some of the power draw, so it still could be a PSU problem.

I agree with Jonathan, especially in light of what you posted about your PSU being marginal for your graphics card. After you get your new PSU, you can check your RAM.
