Need help figuring out what I need

Currently have:

Gateway 506GR computer w/ stock 300 watt PSU
7600GT vid card

Upgrading to a x1950pro so I know I'll need a bigger PSU... but I don't know how MUCH bigger and I don't know the specific type of PSU I need.

Any suggestions? I'm completely ignorant when it comes to power supplies.

  1. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153028

    try something like this.

    I could list more expensive ones but this one should work fine.
  2. Are you sure that will work? It says it's a 20+4 and I think mine needs 24-pin... here's a picture of what connectors mine has:

    Someone told me there's a difference? Again, I don't know much about these things :?

    20+4 is 24pin.
    Its backwards compatible with the older 20pin mobo,s
