So you want to spend 200/$200 on a video card and get a new PSU?

Without knowing which video card you have right now, it's tough to recommend something.

$200 isn't much if you want a quality power supply (and trust us, you do) and a fast video card, so that being said, this power supply should be fine to start with, but which video card do you have currently?

I'm not sure if you mean $200 on PSU and GPU or $200 just on GPU.Heres a GPU for $199.99- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130562 and heres a PSU $84.99- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341018

Hope this helps.GL!

EVGA has a cheaper one with 192bit/768mb memory.I think the extra $10 dollars is worth it, considering that you get 256bit with 1GB of memory.
For the PSU anything above 600w would be good.If you plan on SLI later on than i would go 750w or above.I'll list two PSU's,650w and a 750w.
