I have a HP a6130 which has:

AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 500+ 2.60GHz 32-bit Operating System. And everything else hasn't been upgraded.

I chose the PSU and the Graphic card to buy: Corsair VX 450w and the EVGA GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB.

I just want to make sure that the new PSU and the 8800gts can work in my computer

Thanks

No way is a 450 w gonna power that vid card,you should look at atleat a 750w power supply from either corsair/antec/silverstone/thermaltake(toughpower series)
you might be right.
but i calculated some wattages of my computer

My desktop runs on a 250w power supply(HP a6130n) in perfect stock condition and i don't have a cooler or any output devices. The site told me that I need about 69w boost for the 8800gt(I've changed my mind from the gts). So I was thinking the Corsair VX 450 was going to be fine (396w of max output).
