Yea it would, but i would go with a better brand like seasonic, thermaltake, or FPS Group.

so something like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104037 maybe?

i suppose i dont need a 550watt psu do i? just for the 8800GTS 640mb vid card, since required is 400wat, would 550 be overkill?

550 is fine, doesnt harm to have a big supply, incase of future upgrades

i cant really upgrade this anymore than that, i cant SLI or any of that good stuff so would the vid card as well as the rest of the computer work with say a 450 watt? its basically a price thing right now

450 would be the minimum I'd want to see with that card, but I would recommend sticking with the 550. That way you'll have some room for growing and other devices won't steal the card's much needed power.

I pesonally wouldnt go for any of them, i would save my money and get a decent brand like seasonic, antec etc. Alot of people underestimate the importance of a good quality PSU.
