i second that. the corsair hx520 will be enough unless you go sli go with the 620. these are cheapest at buy.com. i think $80 after MIR for the 520 and $150 for the hx620.

$25 for a 575W PSU from a K-mart brand? Well you can go for it if you like smoldering computer parts....

Hipro, Xcilo, and FSP are amoung the "cheapest" good quality PSU's. By cheap, I mean atleast $50-$60 USD.

a GTX requires a minimum 450watt, so you should be fine with the gts.

I know that the psu would PROBABLY work, however, as it gets older (like all PS) it will lose efficiency. (less power for your computer). This could lead to BSODs and all-around headache...get a good one. My PS was certainly not the most expensive ($65), but it is more than I will ever need! (+ it is modular). 600 Watt and 35A 12v Rail
Found it for $69.99 @ Tiger Direct - Clicky

In conclusion: Don't buy that PS, get a better one with more Amps on the 12V rail


EDIT: according to the minimum specs for the 8800, that power supply that you want doesn't cut it. Required 28A...PS has 25A
