Could my PSU be going bad?
My system will not turn on using my power switch on the front panel, unless I turn off all power to my system using the on-off switch on the back of the power supply. After waiting a minute or so, flip the power supply switch back to on, and then hit the front panel power on switch it turns on.
Any thoughts on this?
I'm not sure if my PSU is listed over on the left or not.
It's an OCZ520ADJSLI 520W RT

Thanks

It could be if your running a GTX260 on a 520w PSU it's probably dying way too much card for that supply you need at least a 750w in a quality unit> https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...9006&Tpk=750tx

That PSU you've got listed from NewEgg looks like a pretty good deal. I understand for my video card that I need (2) PCI-E 6 pin connectors, will that one take care of it?

Thanks for your reply.
