Upgrading my system....

I spent to much time reading this forum, and I founded that I have to upgrade my system because the new Video Cards need additional power, it is true? I think that I have enought power and I only have to update my video card. Any suggestion?

Depends, What is your current Power Supply?

In addition to just the brand and total wattage, what is your PSUs rating on the +12v line? If you want something that's relatively future-proof, you'll want a PSU with at least 20A on this rail.
