Default Re: Upgrading to GeForce 6800LE, help required!

A good quality 350-400watts PSU should be enough. I think the recommend specs are 18amps on the 12V rail. Iīd pick the 6800LE over the 6600GT if you like to play with AF/AA since the performance hit isnīt as large with a 256bit memory bus (on the LE), compared to the GTs 128bit bus. At stock clocks the GT should be a little bit faster when compared to a LE without any unlocked pipes/vertex shaders and at stock clocks. However, almost every LE can be unlocked and overclocked to 6800nu levels and then it should beat the GT.
