Default Would my PSU work for this?

I have an Ultra Lifetime 500 watt powersupply that i got from TD for 40 dollars back in the day.

it is basically this but in black

Do you think i will be able to run a 250 gts and possibly a triple core phenom when i get the money?

That's right, i am making the switch

Maybe for a while, but I wouldn't put my life on it.

Yup, it should. It does 500W and 28A @ 12V. The GTS 250 requires at least 450W w/24A @ 12V.

See my sig? Running three (soon to be four) AMD rigs. And I've been happy with all of them. Yup, I have.

That's funny, I use to run exclusively AMD. But my latest two builds are Intel. My notebook computer 3 1/2 years old is a Athlon.

I'm going in the wrong direction!
