Ok you all. I don't care about ATI's latest and greatest. Nvidia has never failed me and unless your running benchmarks all the time you don't even see the diff between the companies cards. Any I bought a 5600 Ultra 128Mg. Love it and all my games look even better. However I have heard that I should upgrade my power supply which is currently 300 watt. I did notice the power input for the card and plugged the power into the card. I don't see any real strain on the power supply. I should also let whom ever replies to this. I have 3 cdrom devices CDRW,DVD, & Standard CDROM 52x, and 3 harddrive (2) 100gb and (1) 200gb. Basic internal components modem, soundcard, wireless nic. Also a fan bus.

So what do you guys say upgrade to a 350 or 400. Or stay with what I have.

Thanks,
Matt Neufeld

400 min. preferably something more powerful, and something along the lines of a fortron unit
