I have notice my computer sounding like it is struggling to survive. It sounds like the power supply is going to give out. This is a new system and I do have alot inside of the tower. Nvida Geforce 6800 PCI Express video 2 OCZ DDR2 1GHZ total 3.01 Intel Celeron Gigabyte Motherboard. Winfast TV2000 Video Capture card. Plextor DVD Burner SLot Drive / Benq DVD Lightscribe Burner. 3 LED Case Fans and lights on the front of the tower.. 2 LCD 19' Hyundai Monitors. Is there a way to boost power? Or can it be that I have something else wrong?
