As in how many watts, not width times height times depth...

It will freeze prior to logging on, in safe mode, and even when booting from the Windows CD. I have not flashed my BIOS, but I don't see how that's going to help, anyway.

Check the amps on the +12v rail (usually printed on the side of the PSU unit itself), should be at least 24A if not ore. More than one 12v rail, add the figures together. Same to the other poster.

+12V: 2.18V <--- I've seen it as low as 0.96V
Is this an indicator that my Power Supply is bad?
Also, how much power do I really need?

As to how big you need - I'd argue 465w isn't enough but that being said, as I stated previously, more depends on the amperage than the wattage output.

(mine's 500W, btw)

Have you examined the state of your fans recently?
13 months of use is a lot and a build up of dust is inevitable so cleaning your fans COULD solve your problem.
And the fins on your heatsink(s).

crytek21...can you give us the actual make and model # of your power supply...
I can't find anything about Retail Plus 465 Watt
