Default Re: Need opinions: Do I have Core card problem or computer problem?

Same thing happened to me and it was the PCI busses on the motherboard that were the issue. When cards are present, they draw power and cause the shutdown. When no cards are present, computer is fine.

I bought a used one on eBay for approx $700 (this was a few years ago) and sold the "defective" one to a friend that would never use PCI cards for $500. That comp is still in use as is the used one I bought.
