Default Re: 7600GT. I need one of these.. But what one?

As far as video cards goes using the PCI-express x16 slot, they may or may not need that extra power connector. More of the higher performance video cards require an extra power plug to give it extra juice to power the video card. The power dongle is just the regular power plug that comes out of any standard power supply should your video card need it. So any power supply will work with that video card as long as it it's 350watts or higher. If you SLi them, then you need a new power supply. That thing draws 18amps, wow.

OMG, that Aspire PSU will dominate over what you have no problem. I have slightly higher specs than you and I'm using that Aspire PSU. But you already have a 480 PSU though.

Yes, the exact same one. It's my first 500watt power supply ever. It's pretty good.

Hmm, so it looks what I have will work. Thanks all!

But do I need to worry about the amps for this card? Just becaus I have the wattage in the PSU that automaticly means I have the amperage?

I'm not sure what PSU you have as far as amperage goes. I know the Aspire one can handle it because it supports dual 12V @ 18amps output. If you ever want to buy a PSU, that would be a good one to get and it's only $40.

I personally have a eVGA 7600GT. I got a free copy of AOEIII, but I haven't played it yet.. So far it runs great though.

Oh, and for the record, my PSU has 33Amps on the +12v, 460 watt
