you might want to wait for the resident psu expert(Shub) to chime in before you pull the trigger, he might help pin down if it's really a psu problem or not

He should really swap out the Thermaltake regardless if he's still within the return window. Any of the options linked above would be more than adequate.

TC, are you going to a brick and mortar store or ordering a new one online?

we don't know how old this psu is, how heavy its been used, or how dusty it is.

all of these things matter.

no i mean, you get a black screen than the system reboots, i got that a lot when i was overclocking my pii 955, it didn't have enough voltage or the voltage wasn't clean enough, mostly due to my crappy motherboard

What was happenening is once i had installed the drivers it would restart i would see the windows screen then black. The video card works as i have tested it in my brothers computer and right now i have a 6670 in place until i can fix this

Fair enough, just make sure you get a quality one and not just one with more watts. Power isn't everything. Component quality and design are most important.
