What power supply brand are you running? Is it a generic one? I think you are good considering it's a 500watt.

im a little power requirement-challenged, meaning i dont fully understand how power req - psu works lol... now my quick question is will my old system with this silly psu rating of 230v - 4a - 60hz - 500w be able to run a 9600gso?

heres the spec:

x2 4000+ @ 2.55 ghz
asus m2n-vmx
2gb ram
1 sata 160gb WD Caviar
1 120mm aux fan, 1 80mm aux fan

any form of help will be very much appreciated, thanks!

I have an Antec 450watt power supply. 32amps on the 12volt rail though.

What kind of case was it? If you bought a good case some of them do come with quality power supplies.
