    For the rig that you are currently running, one of those should™ be fine. I tend to like to future-proof myself by going at least 1 step ahead of what I need. With that in-tow I would personally think about the 620 variant. That being said, 620w is overkill for your current setup.

    ill probably get a 620W one then...to make my PC (mildly) future proof, as 620W will easily cope with a 8800GTS/X.

    i agree with most ppl, a psu is a good option but if your looking for a good monitor i found some on scan, what size were you thinking of, and how much cash do you have to play with.

    i have no cash at the moment, but after i sell my PSP, xbox, and some other stuff ill have around £200 i hope.

    Im looking for a 19" monitor really, though a 21/22" would be nice if i can afford one.

    Are you running your 6300 at stock speeds? If you overclock it once you upgrade your psu u will be able to get major performance increases. (an get to 3GHz with stock cooler if lucky)

    What exactly do you mean by major performance increases? How many fps can you expect to gain with his listed 7600GT by overclocking the 6300 to 3ghz?
