Ditto from me
Phillpower2, Thanks for the input. Must be nearly time for a garden beer before Sunday lunch.
Apologies iammykyl, missed that, never drink on a Sunday but did this week due to the heat here and having worked very hard, and all day

Been a while since we heard from you. How did the upgrade go? need any more help? An update would be appreciated.

Hello. I have received the graphics card, but I have not had the time to open the box and install the hardware. I will get back when I do. Thanks

Sorry for the long delay guys. This weekend I did get a chance to open the box and install the card. I did your suggested step by step advice on the DDU program.
The only minor problems (if they were real problems) was something about Microsoft .net framework already on and it wouldn't install something off CD and I couldn't stop the new hardware found icon at the bottom from detecting the new hardware it ran so fast.
In all the card fit cleanly into the slot all drivers are updated and it is working great. My previous fan was so loud and I am not used to this quite noise, I thought my PC was off.
I am using the old power supply for now. I will get the new power supply down the road following your recommendation of the evga one. Thanks again for the tremendous support!

Glad to hear that you are happy with the new card
NB: Don't be tempted to keep using the Bestec PSU, they can appear to be working ok but will actually not be putting out enough power.
