I want to use a Nvidia geforce 8400 GS 512MB PCIE 2.0 gpu in this system. It has a 320GB seagate sata 7200rpm 3.5'' HDD, and a 250W PSU. It would be of great help if somebody suggest compatible PSU's of 500W and higher rating. The psu connector is 24pin, double rail, atx type, because of the motherboard.

why would u want a 8400 GS??
If you want to upgrade to 500W PSU then go for at least 9800, it's much more powerful...

How do u think, obsidian86??

I already bought this 8400GS. Actually it was a package deal and i didn't had much of a choice. if u take a look, the specs are not any bad........ its giving me all that i need for now. any thoughts on compatible PSU's for this card. my MB is micro atx form factor.

Your PSU would fit perfectly in your micro atx form case...

So don't worry about that... :)
