It's not the wattage to be concerned with, it's the current flowing to the card. You could probably run your system with that card with a 300 watt power supply fine (even though that's pushing it) as long as you have a good amount of amps on the +12V rail, and a high quality power supply. See if you can find a power supply with at least 24a on the +12V rail, and try it.
Did you try just looking at the Task Managerís performance tab while not playing a game to see if there is a spike every 15-20 seconds? Youíve probably got some other app that is doing some maintenance (if youíre lucky) or bad things (if youíre not).

If you look under the processes tab, you should be able to see what has the most cpu usage. Try closing some background programs, including antivirus/antispyware programs. What anti-virus are you using by the way?
For the heck of it, try removing the first 2gb of ram you had in your system. Maybe they were bad sticks. At this point though it doesn't look that way, but it never hurts to try .
