Yeah, BUT my current PSU will not be running ANY fans or lights, I leave that up to my 2ndary. So it only powers the critical system components. My current PSU isn't a bad one at all, but seeing as the 7800GT takes up 2 molex connectors for the one video card... So you REALLY think that it won't allow for OCing? I mean, I only use about 5/8ths of it, and with the 7800GT I'll probabally only use about 3/4ths of it...

If you've oc'd with it up to 2.8 plus already, I think its proven itself.
I've heard good and bad stories about the Aspires but have seen quite a few in the rig profiles.
I also built a P4 3.0E rig for my daughter more than 14 months ago with the Aspire 520. She runs it 24/7 and has never had any issues, but,
shes not oc'd!

oh yeah sorry, i misread your question. yeah your 520 should be fine with that. My cousin has an Aspire 350 that came with his case. It has given him zero problems for a year now. With only 3/4ths used your rails should be fine, so I would stick with that one, even with heavy oc'ing. As of now though, I always have an extra $100 laying around for just a new PSU. I've had my share of bad ones...
luckily for you, Aspire is not on that list.
