Hi everyone just a question. Would a 400w Seasonic PSU (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...)be enough to power my system and maybe a little overclocking on my 8800GT. I only have my Amd Sempron and HDD and about of 1Gb of ram installed on it.

Thanks but the PSU I linked above is the one I already own.

8800GTX is good to go. The suggested PSU for one is 450W and 28Amps +12V.
Both PSUs above meet that +12V suggestion.
The Corsair does have 1 6pin PCI-e power connector so you'll only need 1 molex to PCI-e power adapter.

In your case you'll need two of the molex to PCI-e power adapter for the 8800GTX.

The Seasonic looks like it might also have 1 6pin PCI-e adapter - its just not listed in the NewEgg specs.

The 8800GT is a better match for your Sempron than the 8800GTX which would experience bigger CPU bottleneck. 1Gb ram is low by today's std's so an upgrade to minimum 2Gb would be well worth the money.

+1
for the 2GB upgrade.

What motherboard and Sempron do you have? Is it time to think about an upgrade?
