i'm planning on buying either the 9400GT which requires a 300watt power supply or a 9500GT which requires a 350 power supply. I prefer the 9500GT but i'm not sure if it will run on my power supply. can someone tell me if it could run the 9500GT?

9500GT will run on a good quality 300W PSU.

the power supply came stock with my HP desktop. I don't want to blow anything up or break anything :/  it says combined power will not exceed 300watts whatever that means.. tell me if theres anything else I need to inform you guys to see if it would work. thanks guys [:

I'm running a 8600GT on a 300W HP PSU, which is essentially an 9500GT with a older manufacturing process that uses more power.

4GB of ram is enough for Windows 7 64-bit , gaming ...
But 7GB Ram (o_O') !?

how did you end up with 7gb ram?
unless you have 4 slots, 3 of them running 2gb sticks and 1 running a 1gb stick. that will limit ur performace!, because with unequal ram sticks you cant run in dual channel mode.

How much are they?
Get the 9500GT, performs better than the 9400GT while using about the same power.

they are both 54-55 dollars I think
