hi mrobjo, its a cheap and cheerful PSU it will run the 7600gt easily , but are you limited cash wise , could you not afford to go a little bit better on the PSU , a good quality supply will reap benefits in the future

Will it power a 7600 GT, the 17A on the single 12V rail should be enough. One thing I can tell you is that it is not a 500W power supply. With the specs on the label of it,

you would be lucky if it is a 300-350W power supply.

That one is an even bigger piece of junk than the first one you linked too. The problem with most cheap/bargain basement power supplies is that when they go (some don't, but an awful lot of them do) they have a very bad habit of taking other components with them (usually the motherboard, video card, memory, you name it) as they have little to no over-voltage protection in them.

Here is a good read on what to look for in a power supply and what a lot of the terminology means,

Power Supply Information and Selection - Tech Support Forum

and to give an idea as to how well cheap power supplies don't work,

The Bargain Basement Power Supply Roundup Review

That being said if you can stretch it a few more , then something like this,

Antec 430W Basiq Power PSU - Dual 12V Rails PCI-E and.. | Ebuyer.com

should do.

P.S. Would help to know what the rest of the system is.
