I just bought this card, and when I first put it in and put my windoctor up, the -12v was beeping and it was at 14.00. I got a warning, and I really don't know what's going on. Someone said that my PSU is to small or something but I have a 350watt PSU.. Is this to small? Is there some way I can fix it?

My PC Specs:
Abit NF7-s
ATi Radeon 9800 Pro
Corsair XMS 512mb Dual Channel
Hitachi 7200 80GB HD..

You most likely DO need a new psu. ALso, dont post in multiple forums. I broke this rule earlier, lucky me nobody found out....

Anyway, often a 350w can be too weak. How many watts it puts out is not a good indicator of its power. You need to look at the rails of the psu. My 12v rail is 21A, a good play to shoot for is at least 16.
