you've got the sr1650nx.. i had that, selling it soon, its a 350 watt psu, i called the company and checked it myself... its maximum output is only 320 watts though. I dunno if you wanna risk that beefy graphics card on that system, i felt bad just running my 6800 gs on my compaq..... i'd get at least 450 w dual 12v rails.... hrmmmm cpu's don't do too much in games right now, but that 3500+ will own games... my opteron 146 is at 2.6 ghz and i barely noticed a difference in games from my 3500+ in my compaq.. maybe 5 fps different, not too much
