This will obviously require a PSU upgrade. My current PSU is an FSP Group inc. with the following amps +3.3v = 20.0A +5v = 26.0A +12v1 = 8.0A +12v2 = 14.0A +5Vsb = 2.0A -12v = 0.8A
The current set up I have is:
Mobo: Acer E661FXM CPU: Pentium 4 524 Prescott @ stock 3.066Ghz RAM: 512Mb Generic RAM (I intend to upgrade this to 1GB with a couple of 512MB Geil 400MHz DDR http://www.cclonline.com/product-info.asp?id=21578) HDD: 1 SATA 7200RPM HDD, I may add another in the future 1x CD drive & 1x multimedia bay
This is probably overkill but I just want to make sure it works and won't fail me in the future as I will probably overclock the GPU a fair bit in a few months. Also I'd like run this for a year or two and then turn it into a HTPC.
Also recommendations for memory are welcome, but I've already bought the GPU so that's a no go.

The corsair should work fine. Newegg has a similar model, and it has 41 amps on a single 12v rail.
Great! Thanks for the quick reply aswell, I'll probably order the stuff today.
