Just a reminder that a small power buffer for the PSU is always a good idea. In essence you don't want to have your PSU run at full power outage all the time, the fan will die quicker and will make a heck tone of more noise. In my opinion spending 10 more bucks on your PSU just to get a bit over the required ammount will be worth it. If you already have the PSU then, well as people alredy said it will run fine.

If you have only 22A on the +12V rail, then it's not really a 380W PSU in any meaningful way, but well under 300W. Given the likely age of this PSU, I would not personally do this if these are components I care about at all.

Yes, I know what an 8800 GT looks like and if I didn't, I can Google it too. I wanted information on your card.

Because, well, here are two things. Including one from the site you pasted a picture from.



I'm trying to get information about what you have to make a safe recommendation, but what you say you have is inconsistent with how the thing you say you have was manufactured. Without accurate information, there's no assistance I can give, so I wish you luck.
