    +12v = /18A MAX

    Umm by sata, is that a hard drive, if so, one, one graphics card which will be swapped, and a dvd drive, nothing special in there.

    Processor is a core2duo 2.33ghz

    Yes mate that will be fine at 85% threshold should be using about 17A. (presuming your processor is a E6550 (65w)):thumbsup:

    Windows, internet explorer, pressing start button etc

    To switch it off I then have to press and hold the power button.

    Right well it seems it wont be a power issue at at idle it will pull only small amounts. First make sure you are running the latest bios 1.0.15. the run ]driver sweeper in safe mode to clear out your old driver from your old GPU then try installing again.:thumbsup:
