You should definately get a better psu than that one. It only has 27amps on the 12v rail... you should be looking for something with a minimum of about 33 for your rig.

Also, 450 is the minimum suggested for a 7800GT I believe and yours is OC'd so it will require more juice.

I would say look at an OCZ powerstream 520, Seasonic S12-500 or Seasonic S12-600

yes.. the namebrand i've never heard of

but still, those guys saying 27 amps is BAD? I wouldn't trust anything on them 27 amps is very good in terms of the 12 volt rail. However i would try and get an x-connect from http://www.tigerdirect.ca they have x-connects and i love mine

we wernt saying 27A is bad on the 12v rail, but what he is powering, he might want a step up. The Seasonics are good PSU's, also the OCZ is, but it is overpriced. I wouldnt get the x-connect, there weak and i really regret buying mine. (they overrate the amprage and wattage)

27amps is enough, but is it stable??, Antic 550 true power duel 12volts 18amps each, modular plugs.
