As for a single rail PSU, you might want to look at the new Silverstone Olympia 650W or 750W.
How can you tell if that is the problem - I have experienced the same thing and I just happen to have an Enermax 535w all-in-one PSU - its on my list of upgrades..... but it was lower on the list - might just bump it up a notch or two.....
