    PSU, won't improve anything unless the system is shutting down randomly... Don't bother
  2. You are maxing out your PSU but like Computerrock1 said as long as you are not getting random shut downs I wouldn't worry about it. A larger PSU will add no performance gains. You will only need a bigger PSU if you go with a more powerful GPU otherwise you are good even with your overclock.
  3. Thanx alot guys :bounce:
    , nope, no random shut downs yet. i'll just wait for this psu to die then i'll reinvest in a good one, thought i was missing out on the 8800's full potential(stock).
