    PSU with a GTX480 upgrade

    I'm a bit out of date when it comes to PSU's these days and presume that my current one wouldn't be able to take an upgrade of a GTX 480 or something of that nature. (Check out my system specs <----)

    What kind of wattage am I looking at for that upgrade? I'm guessing something at least 750W?

    should be ok with the one you've got if you have the right physical connectors....

    an 8 pin and a 6 pin.

    I've been using a Zalman PSU on a test rig that's only 550W and that's been running fine with my GTX 480. Overclocked too!

    Oh awesome. I was convinced I'd need an upgrade!
