Antec, OCZ, Zalman, Seasonic, Corsair, or PC P&C) ok if more people sugest it should be enough ill use it for now i am planning on replaceing it soon can anyone sugest a good one around £50 to £60 preferably with a 8 pin cpu 12v 2 or more pci-e 6 pin & higher amps more rails and of course if i can get it for that price more watts i just need the info for now cos i have a crappy job but if theres a risk ill be hammering the power supply - parts not getting enough juice risk of damage i guess i can wait and just test the card and upgrade the psu in a week or so aevm September 4, 2008 2:59:02 PM 650W is enough for 8800GT. That Ezcool PSU is suspiciously cheap. Look here: http://www.scan.co.uk/Search.aspx?q=650W. In the same store, a Seasonic or Enermax also rated 650W costs several times more. Check this out: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/135514 Corsair 650W TX £60.25 Edit: "more rails" is not really an advantage, don't worry about that. The 650TX only has one rail, but it's very strong (52A IIRC). data September 19, 2008 9:57:02 PM well by the time i had the money the corsair was out of stock and i wasnt paying £20 more on ebay so got this of ebay cheaper than it was on ebuyer http://www.antec.com/us/productDetails.php?ProdID=28650 any good comments? aevm September 20, 2008 3:57:24 PM Good stuff Can't find your answer ?
