    Ok...I have the same exact system as you and I fixed my problems , took a lot of trial and error. Now it might be your power supply, but for me it was the RAM. The Asus 570 mobo doesnt support DDR2 6400 at 800MHz. It causes instability. Upon startup, enter mobo bios and up the DRAM voltage to 2.0 or 2.1 volts. Might just be a lemon card though....good luck)

    nice one mate cheers for that. anything that could help sort this out for me is worth a go. tbh if its a duff mobo then all the better, itll go back for a refund and a different mobo will be got.

    Anyone got any last bits of advice/knowledge/wisdom before I reformat this bloody thing? (Is in process of backing files up now)

    *Edit* oh yes, forgot to add, when I reinstall XP, what's is going to do regarding my serial number? Do I just enter it again to activate it, and will that be verified by Microsoft (again) when I do the online register thing so the damn thing doesn't stop working after 30 days?

    mine still hasnt returned from the local pc wizards, but i know the bother with mine is defo not the psu. they tried that and tested it on full load and its more than capable of being up to the job. i still have the feeling that its a case of a completely ****e mobo. so many people have been having bother with this board. but fingers crossed ill get it back tomorrow and ill post up what the problem was. until then, hold off on the reformat if you can. if your anything like me, another reformat will just make you even madder with it when it doesnt work.

    right, got my rig back today and it turns out that it was defo the onboard sound. they had it running stable with the new sound drivers from the asus site, but i used that as a good excuse to get myself a nice shiny new soundcard. so there you go, hope that helps anybody else having bother with the p5nsli board. ill post a thread up on the mobo section too.

    Recommended PSU for the 7950GT is 350W with 20A across 12V i think ..
