Here's a working link to the graphics card...

Don't forget that card needs two 6-pin power connectors, according to the specs on the Antec page, it only has one. So you'll need an adapter of some kind.

Have you calculated the whole lot (i.e. what your complete computer will be) in a PSU calculator?

It looks like it should be fine.

Cheers

that psu has a 6+2 pin and a 6 pin. that site is wrong, i saw that to, on the box is right, and also the 6+2 pins is labeled. and this is my wish list for what i prob will get, the cpu and graphics card, and hdd is a definate, still not sure with mobo(if thats not a good one could u recommend one for me, thanks) and ram.

the psu calculator says 320watt, which is prob wrong cause the min for the gtx is 500w

this is the case i got for it, http://www.tigerdire...AIN#detailspecs

It says its a mid but its really a full size.

thanks

"525W PCI Express-compliant system power supply with a combined 12V current rating of 38A or more" according to the link you posted.

I'm going to have to have to write down this one as a "yes" (to the original question posed in the topic title).
