thank you, i will try the card first before i get a new power supply. the reason i asked is i cheked my speciphic card on another feedback and some people who own said they needed a power supply around 500w. the card in question is a bfg geforce7800 gt oc with PCIe interface.

Not True I Have A 7800GT And Im Only Running A 450Watter And I Havent Had Any Problems, Not To Mention The Fact That Im Running A 3800+ Dual-Core, So You Should Be Fine With Anything Thats 350Watts+ But Id Reccomend Bigger Now If You Go SLI Thats A Differesnt Story

If you do run into any problems Pc power & cooling make replacements for Dell PSU's that are much better and more powerful.
