The TT 430W isn't a bad power supply, but personally I wouldn't trust it to deliver the goods with a graphics card requiring additional power, esp since (going by memory) the TT 430W is an ATX 1.3 power supply using an included adapter to work with newer mainboards. I know that although they work in newer mainboards with the adapter, things like ACPI don't seem to work right. If you can borrow a good power supply off someone else, I would try it and see if you notice any difference.
But when I was using Windows Vista with the same PSU and GPU, I had no problems. It all started after I installed Windows 7. Could the OS affect the PSU??
