Default Upgrading my system....

Hi,

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?

Thanks

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.
