So I finally ordered the card and the power supply. Once again, thanks for answering all of my questions.

I think there's really one more question I need to ask you. I hear that if your motherboard has integrated graphics (like mine), then you will need to disable that first before you can use any additional graphics card, is this true? If so, how do I go about doing that? Thanks.

Most motherboards will automatically disable the integrated video when an add on card is installed. information on this will be in the Mobo manual. If you do have to disable it yourself, it is done through the BIOS.

Please let us know the results of your upgrade or if you have any problems.

Didn't catch this thread in time, but good choice on PSU.

I have the TP3 650, mine is coming up on 3 years old now. I literally upgraded my CPU tonight :D from E6750 to Q9550. So the PSU and floppy disk drive are the only two things left of the original build - everything has been upgraded over time, and the PSU has never skipped a beat!

But that one you have ordered is the New updated version, looks great! I only have 4 SATA connectors on mine, you will be getting 9! Yours is modular (mine is not). And we both get 5 years warranty. Definitely a great PSU for the money.
