Bad thing is I have never heard of that brand of PSU.

however a 650W should work fine. (just recommend a better brand. 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

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.

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).
