I think so too, but if he's on a tighter budget, then a lower card would be better.

since the 8800 needs 2 power connectors one could connect from this (and then connect to his hard drive and cd drive) and his other psu could take the other load from the 8800 and the motherboard cpu
i think it would work quiet nicely.....
since he has such a small case
this this pops right in a drive bay
another solution would be to run dual psu
just leave one outside the case....
That could work!!!! I also dont mind running a Power supply from outside the case either... do you know of a good one??? THANKS!!!

Quick question, with that designated power supply you just linked me to(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817101025), will I be able to purchase this graphics card? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130082

Yes, you will. But don't buy that graphics card, it is the old G80 8800GTS. There are newer, cheaper, better performing cards available, like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127333 or this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814145149 or this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125086
