Dont get a multirail psu, there largely over hyped. Because even if all the combined rails equal 30 which is what you need, you can only have the video card on one rail, so it will be getting alot less power than it should. Go with a large single rail psu.

allenn, the separate rail thing isn't much of an issue as it was before when psu manufacturers started it. Now you can see 18A 12V rails which are plenty for any video card. 18A converts to 216W of power on one rail. Now if you have 4 rails, that is an incredible amount of power. Yes its true that a single beefy 12V rail is nice to have, and I would prefer it, but some of the best psu's out there have high amperage separate 12V rails.

Hmm its kinda low pent D bottlenecks the 8800 a little but not to that extreme, with my new setup I should get arround 8000-8500, the only difference will be that ill have core duo and you pent D and the difference in RAM of the GPU's. Yeah I dont know its to low.

Did you download the new drivers 158.19?? The 158.18 is for Vista so make sure you download the 158.19.

I know the P-D is outdated and older than the Core 2, but it should still work very well for gaming, atleast much better than this. I have a friend with a x1650 pro that gets the same fps as me, and someone with a 7950gt who gets like 250-300 fps in CSS with a similar system to mine.

I'll look into the driver issue, but I just wanted to show you performance I think is below what it should be.

Is this the driver:?
