I'm currently looking at the BFG NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 OC 512MB PCIe 2.0. On the BFG website they mention;

475W PCI Express®-compliant system power supply with a combined 12V current rating of 26A or more (Minimum system power requirement based on a PC configured with an Intel Core®2 Duo E6750 processor)

I'm using a Antec EA-500D PSU with mentions of 12V 22A. Sadly I have no idea if thats above or below 26A...

I'm also running with a Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 processor.

My PC is around a year and a half old... my current Evga 8800GT is having overheating issues... and playing with my case open + a fan shooting in isn't the most pleasant of experience...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah I like keeping my pc with a minimum stuff on it to maximize power... 1 hard drive and 1 dvd-rom O.o

Thanks for the quick help :)
