    after a time my pc shuts down

    i have fitted a creative sb audigy 2 platinum card, (edit)well actually it just shuts down and when i change the fuse,which i have just checked and is not blown I can startup again. I have alongside a geforce 5200 AGP, on a socket A 2500+. powered by a 400w qtec (eek again)( i am longing for an upgrade in the autumn), also I have 2 hdds.
    I have never had problems until today.

    so whats the problem guys, is it the psu, i suspect it is. so what should i buy to start the slow process to a rebuild, Whatever i buy will be the basis for my rebuild and so needs to be as future proof as possible covering all eventualities such as sli or crossfire in the next few years. Also are psu's standard size or will this need a new case too, GF will go crazy! lol
