I hooked up the 9800GT using a molex-6pin adaptor, but didn't connect it right (only plugged in one of the two molex connectors, cos I'm kinda stupid that way) so it died. Before I try again though, I wanted to check with you guys that my PSU can handle this card. Like I said, I read the PSU guides on this site but they all lost me at the word "rails". So here's a picture:

Can this cope, or should I get a better one?
Thanks for your help guys, appreciate it
I don't see how only plugging in one connector could have killed your previous card.. At worst, it just wouldn't have worked.
Really? That's interesting, I just assumed that's why it broke. Yellow dots all over the screen during boot followed by system freeze and a horrible purple and black mess on the monitor when windows starts if that sheds any more light
yeah dont use a generic power supply, they can damage other components in your computer by outputting extremely high voltage variation or high ripple. get a good power supply like a seasonic, corsair, or antec
