You can look into lapping your stock heat sink, while getting a new PSU. The 8800GTS is power hungry and running 400w PSU that came with a case is frightening.

*Edit* lol.. I didn't do the search criteria correctly.

I have used (and still have one) Antec Modular PSU's. I kept the NeoHe, it is a good PSU. It powers Indigo.
