Hey all, I just wanted to ask a couple people before I went through with making this purchase.

I currently have an XPS 8000 with the built in:
chicony cpb09-001b 350W Power supply &
nVIDIA 240gts gpu.

I am planning on upgrading to a
nVIDIA 580GTX & http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814130587
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817139005

I have PCI-E 2.0

Does this check out with people or am i overlooking something important that might mess this up?

Thanks!
~Dustin

:welcome: ~Dustin

Are you upgrading for a better gaming performance?
Two things that you must check before ordering any new hardware are the dimensions of the present PSU and do you have enough room inside your case for a large add on video card, check the Newegg details tab for the dimensions of any potential purchase.

Just a FYI the GTX670 is No1 on the benchmark table at the moment and it is less expensive than the 580, see links;

Superclocked version http://www.tigerdire...p?EdpNo=2580890

Good choice of PSU :thumbsup:
