I agree with SteveI, me thinks your PSU is dying, Q-Tec makes no good PSUs, they are cheap, have big wattage markings but 550W qtec is probably worse then any good brand 400W unit.
I have friend who had cheap PSU (not qtec) and after few weeks of runnig overclocked XP1700+ he had to back off his o/c or he had to give CPU more volts to maintain stability at the same speed. When he replaced PSU with better one he could again o/c with lower voltage, just like at the beginning.

So very likely PSU problem.
