I built a new computer about 6 months ago and lately I've been having crashes and boot problems and I think it's my PSU. It's an Antec True Blue 480 Watt. I spent the extra bucks beacaus I thought I was getting quality. MBM 5 tells me the +5.00 rail is running at 4.50 - 4.60 and the +12.00 rail is at 11.50 - 11.60. These readings soundo out of the park to me but i'd like a second opinion or two from people more knowledgeable.

AMD Athlon XP 2800+ Barton
ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe
Antec True Blue 480 Watt PSU
(2) Western Digital 120GB 7200 RPM hard drives
LG Electronics Combo CD/DVD drive
Plextor 8X DVD writer
Gigabyte GeForce 6600 graphics card
Creative Audigy 2ZS Sound card
Us Robotics Fax Modem
Netgear FA311 network card
 
Those voltages do sound pretty pathetic.
