My new PSU arrived (http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817104953)
and one connection is incompatable! Plus, it also has 19 wires and pins in the 20 pin connection! IS THIS NORMAL? And apparently 12V PCI connections come in two kinds at least, one row of six or two rows of three, and I have the wrong kind. [bleep]!

I put my old PSU back in, (I forgot and used the actual cord of the new one), switched the slots the RAM was in and... it's working now. >.>
Would someone please explain so I know what not to do/do next time?

I've run into the memory swap thing before...it's a rare problem and getting more so all the time. I'm not even really sure why it works to do it. I've been told it's because the first stick (Slot 0) doesn't realease what's been written to it, the next boot will produce a very confused machine.
8 times out of ten, the problem you descibed would be power supply...go figure.
You might look into replacing the RAM...we now know you have at least one buggy stick.

Well, I think I need to send the PSU back and try and get another that's compatable. It crashed again and it's not working regardless of what kind of RAM flipping I do. I wish I knew how to make it work temporarily like it was before, so I could at least use it while I waited for parts to arrive. In any case, I should be getting my new computer very soon...
