I've just installed my GeForce 6600 GT and am loving the graphics but am having a problem. Every game I run after about a minute it freezes for about 30-45 seconds, then everything goes back to normal. And my computer acts like almost as if its taking a nap, because there is no cpu usage at all. I think my PSU might be the problem because Dell loaded me with this crappy 250w power supply, but I want to be sure this is the problem before I buy a new PSU.

P.S. I have updated drivers and ran virus/spyware scanners and I'm clean as a whistle.

Minimum of a 350 Watt PSU is needed. I would buy a 400, or 480 Watt PSU, a good one will cost about $100. Head over to Newegg. ThermalTake, Antec, and Cooler Master are very good brands. Hope that this helps.
