Nice! A lot better than my lame-o MX440 64mb. Though it has served me well for the last 4 years or so.

I can almost taste the speed. *drools*

Sorry to revive this slightly dead thread, but I had a question. I was thinking about overclocking the 7750 when I get it...should I grab a better PSU? Or will I be fine with the 480W Logisys?

I would get a better psu whether you plan on overcloking or not. This antec pus is allot better quality.

Edit with correct psu link:

350w? Will that actually be enough? Especially if I may grab another video card in the future?

Lol, it's all good. I was debating grabbing a new PSU and keeping all my old parts intact and making a folding box. I mean, it's not like I'm going to use it for anything else, and all I need is the PSU and I have a whole new computer. My 1.5tb drive came in the mail yesterday.

Wicked. Thanks for the link.
