First off my current build and a Thanks ahead for any help ^^

HTPC Case - 270 watt Pwr Spply


ASUS M3N78-VM AM2+ - Onboard GeForce 8200 HDMI


AMD Athlon X2 4850e - 2.5 Ghz 45 watt


G.SKILL 4GB - PC2 6400 DDR2 800


WD Caviar Black - 500 GB 32MB Cache SataII


LG Black 22X (CAV) - DVD±R DVD

Using Antec's calculator pushin TDP, Peak Load 100% and 4yrs capacitor aging throws me out a 258 w requirement.
Problem I'm so desperately tryin to solve is a want to add a 9600GT, don't get me wrong the initial build was for the living room and preforms so well I've moved it up as my main.
Galaxy 9600GT 512MB DDR3


Vista's 3.4 score on my 8200 makes me sad tho. So I have scoured all over on what i can do to crank it up just a bit more, and of course since it's my main atm ampin up my gamings a given. The Galaxy 9600GT is a green model stating a 40% reduction on pull, and checking GFX power guide here on Tom's Hardware states 104w while pushing 3D with a 9600GT 512mb. So estimating the 258w pull as is upsized by (40% of 104w= 62w rounded*) i'm going to need atleast 320w some what ignoring calc of 4yrs from original pwr req. Now my baby's case requires TFX for the power supply to which I have also hunted for to no avail. And Galaxy's website states that this model card requires a 350w pwr supply. The Antec MicroFusion Remote 350 comes with a 350 watt TFX, and I'm tempted to buy it just for the power supply but that'd be kinda obsessive.

So I'm left feeling heart broken and looking for any possible assistance on resources for a 350w or better TFX Pwr Spply, even a conversion between form factors, I'll go ahead and say I already trolled over antec's website and couldn't even find TFX pwr spplys for sale.

I thank you for the reply, but that power supply while small for such is an atx form factor, and the review states that the power supply gets loud after 220w.

TFX Pwr Spply- picture for reference


The power supply in the picture is almost a twin to the one residing in my system now, and is one I already noted as a replacement if needed down the road. Tiny lil buggers being a big pain, and a suprise considering how popular both custom builds/mods and Htpcs are these days one would think this wouldn't be such an issue. Considering at 1200w newegg has plenty of atx just for example, asuming 30% of that would leave 360w TFX being small but I'd have to guess over 30% the size of regular ATX form factor.

That's the reason why I provided the info. That power supply is the one that's installed in the Antec MicroFusion Remote 350 that you referred to. A good picture can be found here: http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_conten...

there will be a 350W tfx-psu with 29A on the 12V rail

SS-350TGx, see Datasheet

pls correct me if im wrong, but if your using a 65W processor and less peripherals, a gtx560 should be feasible with that little junk of awsome (if enough molex 4-pin are provided to add some molex 6-pin- adapters)
