    The 7600GT requires 19 to 20 amps on the 12 v rail and does not even use an auxillary 6 pin 12 v power connector. I use one of these on a similar system and it works very well.

    This would be overkill, but it is very powerful and would allow for a future graphics card upgrade up to 8800's if you chose to.

    lol i know its sad im even asking this but..... you know lol.
  3. Just looking over the DC output, it has dual 12v rails at 18 and 16 amps combined on the 12 v rails which is good for a 350 watt psu. I'm not familiar with the psu, but it looks alright at first glance. If you ever upgrade the 7600gt video card, you may need a unit with more watts.
  4. alright thanks! ill try it out...if theres a problem ill follow your suggestion.
