I have a 400w power supply in my Gateway lx6810 HTPC. This system has three internal hard drives plus two powered external USB hard drives. I just installed a Powercolor Radeon 7790 and games work great for a while but after a couple of hours I get a lot of frame rate problems. I installed speed fan and it seems like everything is burning up in there! It's reporting all the hard drives from 51c to 58c and the card at 68c just from sitting with a screen saver going. Could this be caused by the power supply? This deal seems to be for a power supply that isn't much better than the one I have so could someone point me to a deal that would work for the system I have? I was thinking of taking the 460w power supply out of my XPS 8500, popping that in there and just upgrading that power supply instead. Thoughts?
