While nVidia is dominating the high end of the market, they aren't winning all aspects of it, you simply cannot (unless there was a monopoly).\
Do you have a model number for your PSU, though pretty well any PSU should power this card no problem.

Based on what your describing, it already sounds like your PSU is beginning to fail.
Your gaming at low resolutions, this card will be more then enough for you, same with the video RAM. Generally speaking, more video RAM doesn't create a better video card.

That card is operating on the warm side, keep me updated and let me know if you can bring these temps down. Also, I know this may seem stupid, but you'd be surpirsed. Can you turn on your computer and double check that this card's fan does indeed run. Some times they fail without warning.

This is running at idle, with just windows updates going on behind triXX. Noting new at all added or subtracted... I don't understand... I will check a video game shortly, after I get a chance to try one I will let you know if the problem continues with the tearing or what ever it is called. Hope dusk was the problem (crosses fingers)
