More about what power supply
  1. This is the same price http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371033&Tpk=antec%20380 but is 80+ bronze certified and should be plenty for your build.
  2. Oh and I just noticed you put 4x1gb I would go with a dual channel 2gbx2 kit. Also I wouldn't be looking a ddr2 anymore go with ddr3. This is a good cheap ddr3 mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157176&cm_re=asrock_770-_-13-157-176-_-Product with the savings you can bump up to a better video card. like so http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161338&cm_re=5770-_-14-161-338-_-Product

    oh unfortunately besides the graphics card & power supply, i already brought everything else like when they were on sale etc. Though the ram is actually from my current computer, which I am just temporarily using until I find a good deal for ram. As for the power supply, the reason why I didn't look into getting this one is because the graphics card specs says it needs a minimum of 400 watts
  4. I have the HIS HD5670 card and that Antec 380W PSU in my HTPC and it runs w/o any issues. It doesn't even come close to maxing out.
