My current PC:

ThermalTake Purepower 500W
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @2.4GHz
4x 2GB DDR2 6400 800mhz RAM
Gigabyte EP45-DS3L Motherboard
nVidia GeForce 9600GT
Samsung SpinPoint 1TB SATA
Western Digital 750GB SATA

2x 80mm fan w/ blue led (Raidmax Smilodon Case)
2x 120mm exhaust & intake fans (Raidmax Smilodon Case)
1x Blue (2 light) Neon Cathode

Wondering if my PSU can handle nVidia GeForce 9600GT being replaced by a nVidia GeForce GTX 260.

Cheers and Thanks!
