Many OEMs design systems around this idea.
Thank you, that's a good point on the psu area. I really think he should look more towards a mid range card, or get a seccond card like he has and run sli. The 9500's are cheap and both run dx10 which should be good for a couple years. =) Dropping another $50-$70 now and saving the rest wouldn't be a bad idea. Or wait till the next gen DX11's come out and drop in price.

Oh and that 200W on my previous statement was without GFX.

I decided to do some system tweaking and updating. I also have found something new about this issue.

It's a nice way to calculate PSU (rough estimate).
