Hi, im new here and need help immediately. I have been seriously thinking of buying the 8800 gts 320mb card, but I will need a new PSU. Thats where the trouble is... I need one to support this card. I would prefer it be 150$ or less.
I dont know about size and how it will fit into my system. Here is my computer :

You should be able to find a 500W PSU for under $150. I have an Antec Neo HE one that I got for around $100 at BestBuy.

Just remember, the heavier the better and you get what you pay for, but with a budget of $150 you should more than fine. ;)

king, I got the antec true power 650 for $129, as I saw it in the profile of another user with an 8800gts ultra, and its working just fine with my quad core so far.

Can you guys look at my photos, will every thing fit fine? The 8800 gts and the PSU. I have both the pci slots used up and i will remove one of the cards to fit the gts.

Yeah, you'll be fine. The only way PSUs differ in size is in length, meaning it may be a bit closer to your CD/DVD drives, but it's usually not by much. You'll probably have to remove whatever is in the top PCI slot for the GTS, since their dual-slot cards.

OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI 700W Power Supply - Retail at newegg 139.99 rebate makes it 109.99, also check out the thermasltake toughpower series anything over 450 watts for the GTS will be fine, Gtx and ultra rewuire more however, 72amps on 4 rails, http://www.ocztechnology.com/products/power_management/ocz_gamexstream_power_supply-nvidia_sli_ready_ i think that might be your best bet

u probably trying to take the actual psu screws out and not the case screws.

My tt gpu psu works fine with my 640mb GTS , save yourself some money and get one instead of these 700w jobbies , way overkill for a 320mb gts.

Id say go for the cable management as its modular if you are worried about it fitting, They will both "fit" though ,Just the other one might leave you with a lot of extra cable to hide in that tiny case.
