A antec EA 380 would run that card without a problem.

Thats in my money range too =) that'll work for my computer im guessing tho? Think i might get it, thanks =D btw if i got something like that think i could hold a Newegg.com - AMD Phenom 9850 2.5GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 2MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops with that power supply? Reading the reviews tho sounds like ether way imma have to get a much better air flow in my computer :/

With that would there be any good ideas with a CPU fan and heatsink?

Also one more question. also serves as a bump to answer my above post question =) Am i able to turn down the settings on my video card? like the core bus and memory bus, etc. What do i need to turn down to make it run cooler?

I don't think you would be able to run a 9850, because of its high power consumption not all motherboards can support it. If you download cpuz and post a screen shot of the main board tab we can tell for sure one way or the other.

I don't think the video cards temps are that big of a problem, graphics cards can safely run at 60c. I wouldn't worry unless it was at 75c or so.

If you still want better cooling your best bet would be getting a new case. A Antec 300 would give you much better airflow than your current case and would also give you more room for future expansion.

one word of warning as well, there is a very good chance that the power supply that they recommended will not be a slip in replacement. Way back when, i had a pre-built computer (compaq, actually) and i replaced the power supply and it didn't fit in easily because the socket for the power cord was being blocked by some sheet metal on my case.

So, be ready to either bend (ghetto) or cut away a little in order for that power supply to fit into its new home.

My brother had a hp case that was very similar to his and it was able to fit a new power supply without any issues.

Ok i'll download that, and we'll see where that leads off. brb to edit this post with the SS

BTW i just noticed something. I found out my output is 250W. Newegg.com - PNY VCG96512GXEB GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards Judging by what they are saying, i need "at least" a 400W power supply, which I was told to get a 600W+ but I didn't hear about anything cheap :/ might have to take the card out for now till im able to get one becuz i don't want nothing bad to happen to it :/

Ok i was looking into some things and with the help of a friend, i think this will work Newegg.com - OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI 700W ATX12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies He told me to look for a 700W+ PSU found one and at a good price too =D but now the question still stands, would that CPU run on this thing or would i still need more? *Gasp* :X

That psu is overkill, the antec 380w I posted before will be fine. Ricanflow runs 2 8800gt's on the Antec Ea380 and each of those cards consumers as much power as a 9600gt.

More actually.

But yeah, EA 380 can hold its ground.

Also, this cpu is so much better and only$15 more:

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 920 2.8GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
