750 watts is more than you will EVER need, but isnt that the point?


You will almost never need to upgrade it, and being a PCP&C, it will run forever, not that an Olympia wont

@ Intervention: (I got tired of quoting ) The only reason I am not using newegg, is because I'm still a minor that is stuck without a credit card/debit card, so I give my mom my money and she orders the parts for me. BUT she doesn't trust doing any online transactions, and tigerdirect.com just so happens to have a phone number, which she's fine with.

I'll look into the PC&C website to see if you can order of the phone there as well. Thanks for pointing that out though, hopefully I can take advantage of the lower prices.
Edit: You guys are fast lmao...Anyway, thanks for the extra input on the wattage needed...I might be leaning more towards either of the 750 watt's still, just so I don't need to upgrade again later.

My friend ordered his PCP&C from my house. You just tell the person your credit card info and bam, its at your house in 3-6 days.



I'd just get the 750 and say "ffffff-it". Really, spend the extra lets say 50 bucks now, and not worry about ever upgrading it. Lets just say the new 9800's take 300 watts, if you get the 750 off the bat, you wont have to re-invest money into your PSU. Therefore, losing money in depreciation of your old one.

Sounds nice, I'll ask around. I should be able to find someone willing to help, thanks. Or maybe I'll be extra nice to my mom and she will finally take me to the bank to get my own debit card like she's been promising.

I think we both keep making a post, realizing the other already answered, and then go back and edit something back in. Anyway, I agree with you on the whole future proofing aspect. Sounds like a done deal-8800 GTS 320MB and a 750 watt PSU....Now just to order them without loosing unnecessary money....

Debit cards FTW.


PCP&C took care of my friend very nicely.

Just see if a friend will order the video card on newegg for you, and you could pay him cash for it.

I'm rockin' the 610 and it's great.

I would go here

I just selected everything I may POSSIBLY get in the future. Since I don't want SLI, the 610 was the perfect choice
