15 v on the 12 rail is what I get on my machine too. That is some error in the program or the chip that reports data to the program. The power supply is a few years old, a no name brand of questionable quality. I would get another 600w Corsair, Enermax Silverstone etc. Enermax have a 5 year warranty on most of their PSU's. It could still be the video card but I feel you should replace your power supply first as I have explained. Seen plenty of poor PSU's wreck hard drives, video cards and CPU's with there dying days.

You do have a failed PSU. In BIOS it has very little load but in Windows it is loaded and as shown drops below 12V.It is running at only 79% of what it should. Also it has 2 12V rails with a 20A and .6A rating, your 9800GT requires 33W minimum.

I would replace both the GPU and PSU, the GPU is 5 years old. The 9800GT has no problems with w7 but I'm sure it does with modern games.

A bad PSU will cause other components to fail, as Tony said. They will try to run at higher volts and current which the PSU can't supply causing intermittent over heating.

Try HWinfo as a 2nd opinion for voltages, scroll down to the buttons that say Download Installer for you bit version.

Here is mine, I have a 650Ti GPU. This is running Furmark at 1920x1080, the 12V drops to 11.904 but the max column shows 12.192V which is with Windows and 5 IE10 tabs open. Both are within +/-5% of 12V, which is what you want.
