Hi There,

This IS My First Post In This Lovely Fourm, I Was Hopping That Someone Help Me With My Decision. I've Decided To Buy A New Rig Tomorrow But I 've A Question About My PSU. The New Rig Should Be Like This:

Intel C2D E6600
Gigabyte 965P-DS3 Rev 3.3 MoBo
2* 1GB Kingstone Value Ram 667
XFX Geforce 7900 GS Extreme
2* Samsung 160 GB SATA HDD ( Pulled Them From My Old Rig :lol:  )
1* Asus DVD-RW
1* Sony DVD-RW ( I Can Get Rid Off If I Want )

That's It, The Question Is :

Would This Power Supply Be Sufficient ??

I'm on A Budget Right Now And This Is The Only One I Can Afford!! :?

Another Silly Question :

If I Upgraded Later To XFX 8800 GTS 320, Would It Be Enough ? Or I'm Forced To Upgrade IT Too ?

- The Thing Is Choices Are TOO Limited Here Where I Live.

It would probably run your first system you posted. As for the 8800, I have alot of doubts about it. What other power supplies are in the same price range where you live?

Oh, I See.
Thanks M8, If I Where You I Won't Even Bother Know About Crappy PSU We Have Here :wink: .
Incase You Insist They Are :

The Only Decent PSU Is Hec : Ace And Zepher, But I'm On Budget Right Now The Best I Can Afford Is Hec Ace Power 580w, SO I Think I'm Going To Have It, Thanks Agtain For Your Help, Can Anyone Else Approve That The 580w IS Sufficient.

Never heard of any of those brands except HEC. As I said, it will power the system, but it may not run it with the 8800.
