Urgent advice for new PSU

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have just bought an XFX BeForce 8800 gts 320 MB. I'm going to fit in into my system but I don't think the psu can support it (pls see my specs below). So i'm looking for a new one that will suit my needs. My budget is about $50 canadian. I know that isn't much but i blew all my cash on the graphic card. I'll be taking the two back to India with me where i probably wont be able to avail the psu warranty as none of these brands are available there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You won't get alot for that budget but here are a few you might wanna check out;

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...e=COOLERMASTER ($4 over your budget)

But seriously, it's probably best waiting 'till you got another $20-50 and buying a descent PSU.

I would do that but I'm leaving for india in like a week. I totally blew the last of my cash on the GPU. The problem with India is that none of these brands are available there. The only decent PSU I've ever seen there was the antec 550w for Rs.8000 which is about $200. Will the Thermaltake mentioned above run the 8800 GTS properly?

eVGA recommends a 400W PSU, so it should just do the job.
