Hey all. I just purchased this video card... http://www.xfxforce....rationId=185643

This is my current PSU...

This PSU also runs 2 SATA 250gb HDD, two optical drives, a floppy drive, and currently an MSI 6600GT GPU. Do you think I need to replace this PSU to run the XFX card that I'm replacing the 6600GT with, or do you think this will do the trick?

If I do need to replace the PSU, do you think this one is adequate... http://www.ecost.com...dpno~702131.asp

As long as you don't have any problems with thenew graphics card installed i would go ahead and run the PS you have. It does have 2 12 volt rails with enough amps to run a PCI-E card. You should get a molex adapter to convert the second 12 volt rail for the 6 pin power connector with the card.

Personally , i have had so many problems with most power supplys that i will only buy ones i know will not have problems. In a high powered computer i would only install a PC Power & Cooling, seasonic, or Enermax power supplies in the computer.
