As the title says basically, I need to run a Nvidia Geforce 8800GT on the ECS Geforce 7050m-m motherboard. At the moment the 8800GT wont display even POST but the fan runs. I have a 400W PSU which is really old so what make and model PSU would you recommend to suit my needs?
On another note, will this Graphics card work as the mobo is only PCI - E 1.1 compliant?
The 8800gt should work fine for 1.1 pci-e. I use antec and ocz power supplies. The antec at around 500w will work fine for the short run; if you want another faster video card later, get a 650w. Don't buy a cheap brand ps; you'll save in the long run by spending a little more now.

That's what I suspected, does the PSU need any specific features? I dont know much about them, if anything so any specific recommendations would be cool.
