Hi there guys, I've seen this combo en newegg:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.425812

I currently own a PNY 9800GT 512Mb low power edition, and was saving to get a corsair 650tx. I saw this combo and wondered if it was OK. I'm not a major gamer, but I want to play at a good frame rate, here are my specs:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...ry&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3817462

I currently run win XP and Im thinking on migrating to win 7.

So, is it a good deal?

Also, it says this on the PSU info: Output [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]

Does it mean it has 50A power? Is it the same with only one 12V rail?

Thanks for everything!

If im not mistaken that card is almost identical in performance compared to your current one. Might be a tad bit slower. While the psu wouldn't be my first pick its not complete crap either. Id suggest saving more. A faster card from yours for a good price would be something like a 5770 or a 4870. For an nvidia card the 260gtx would be the next logical step as the gts 250 is a re-badged 9800. While a 4850 would probably be faster i doubt its noticeable.
My first priority would be to keep saving for that corsair, that is a wise move on your part

This means it has two 12 volt rails, each individually rated at 25 amps. Maximum combined power for the 12 volt is 450 watts or a total of 37 amps from both 12V rails
