The minimum power supply needed for the 8800GTX, is a 450W with 28 amps on +12v rails. That power supply has 38 amps.

I think by that time, there will already be a better graphic card, knowing how fast technology is accelerating. But heres a suggestion for a more powerful one:

Couldn't go wrong with Either. Though the second link has 38 Amps total while the first has only 32 Amps. But both should work it just depends how secure you want to feel.
