I just made my computer and there seems to be a problem with the configuration of the graphics cards. I am using 2 ati x1950's with crossfire and the screen flashes whenever opening a program like Doom 3. The internet browser and simpler programs like iTunes is fine. But after opening the more graphic intensive programs, the screen starts flashing and i cant do anything. After closing the program the screen will continue to flash and I have to restart the computer to make it stop flashing.

Other specs:

Motherboard: Asus P5W TH
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6700

I'm leaning towards not enough power. Can I get the model # and wattage of your Power Supply?
