I had ocz 700w psu supporting nvidia geforce 8800ultra, IPIBL-LB mobo, intel core 2 6600quad pcu for two years. A week ago I started getting artifacts and blue screen on my pc start up. I swapped 8800ultra for orignal 8500gt 512mb and comp works just fine. Does it mean that my no name psu fried my videocard? I'm going to replace this with new Cooler Master GX series 750w todayand see if 8800 ultra works. What do you think about this psu? Is my videocard already dead?

First of all, it could still be the power supply and might be ageing enough that it does not have enough guts to pull the 8800 card, so I would try ;your video card in another computer to see if it works yet before you dump it. If a power supply is not top notch, two years of service and they decline very fast. While OCZ is not a terrible power supply, they are simply not up to the quality of the top notch supplies.

If you are going to get a new power supply, consider either a Seasonic or Corsair, they are the best. Some Coolermaster supplies are decent, but if it is not the Real Power Pro Model (their great one), then I would be wary of their other supplies which are not known for high quality supplies. That is my opinion.
