I say skip the 8600GT and get a 9600GSO for not that much more if you can afford it.

As for your power supply, you have to look at it. There should be a label on the side of it that tells you how many watts it puts out and how many amps are on the 12V rail (important for graphics cards).
Nice card, i defiantly can afford 10 extra bucks for the increase, but when it says under memory type-GDDR3 does this have anything to do with the mobo? or the RAM?

I got a 500W power supply with my case. It is running amazingly well. You can't say they will fail on you. Try these out.

Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116052
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813135066
Combo Deal: $105.98

RAM:$36.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231098

Hard Drive: $41.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136075

CD/DVD Drive: $27.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827151173

Case: $59.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811240001

GFX: $104.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102719

All these parts have free shipping. The case already has a power supply in it. I can vouch for the case. I own the same exact one. It runs great, with a lot of space in it.

Total price is $377.93. I can't get it any lower. This is a decent build. All these parts have free shipping.
