Anyone have this set-up? I'm worrying about if the PCIe power on the PSU will give enough amps for a X1900XT. Do PCIe power cables from the PSU combine the 12V rails, or is it on one of the single 19A rail?

Thanks,
Matt

Warning: This is what the tech guy told me when I went PSU shopping.

I had 3 PSU's in front of me and asked what one will work best IF I upgrade to the highest of high end cards. He recommended the Tru Power (which I have in my computer now) because it has overall better powering performance to everything. I trust this place so you will have enough amperage for the X1900XT. 550W is near (not definate, but near) overkill for most computers. My computer (listed below) only NEEDS about 350W.

Thanks =). My X1900XT is coming on monday, I haven't had my good pc (in sig) for almost a month because of an RMA. I ended up getting refunded and ordered me a X1900XT. Hopefully I will see a difference.
