if you dont freak up, you can probably successfully install a 8800gt on a
250 watt and have it run fine for at least 3 years... ofc the 250 watt is high quality.






freak up means drastic mistakes such as throwing your 8800gt in water or something.

as you can see from my sig, im running a ZOTAC 8600gt fine on 250 watt psu from a company no one knows.

OCZ is a good brand. The PSU will be reliable. If I were you, I would have gone with an Antec Neo PSU. They're a little more expensive, but they're modular PSUs. If you don't know what a modular PSU is, it's a PSU that allows you to remove the cables you don't use. This way, your tower looks a little cleaner and you get improved airflow.
