    Actually 500W very very enough ... but that 's 500 Watts eXtreme Power Plus dangeorus for system and 9800GT because actually 460W efficiency 77% with labelled 500W / 600W ... yea , for better get from good brand antec, seasonic, corsair, xfx etc with same power watt 500 very very enough.
    and it's al depend your budget , of course .. see price and performance from good reviewer like jonyguru,hardwaresecreet, Kitguru, Harocp

  9. You may also wish to pay your RAM some attention as you say you have 6gb ?

    You should have 4 ram slots and all 4 slots should be filled with equal amounts of ram for system stability, E.G.
    4 x 1gb =4gb
    2 x 2gb =4gb
    4 x 2gb =8gb
    4 x 4gb =16gb
  10. Also all Ram modules should preferably be the same make and model.
  11. Your mobo no support Sli, am3+ 990fx ,990x is support sli. Maybe you need upgrade mobo, thank's for BA
  12. oohh i see.. but theres another question

    i can still use my 500 watt PSU if i were to choose the Asus GTX560 Ti TOP verson rite..?
  13. yep ... and don't use cooler master extreme power plus too long
  14. yea planning to change soon thnx
