    Check the power requirements of the graphics card.

    Depending on exactly which model you are considering the recommended minimum PSU is 350W or 400W with at least 18A on 12V.

    It is unclear whether it means 18A total or 18A on each rail, if it is the latter then the PSU in that case falls well short of the requirements.
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    You should switch to an Antec case with no powersupply and buy it separate. Make sure you get more than enough power. A good choice for future proofing would be an antec supply in the 550 to 650 range. Then you can have four hard drives two rom drives, all the extras and have power to spare. (usb coffee warmer anyone?)
