I just wanted to say thanks for the advice. I got the recommended power supply and video card for Newegg today and was able to install both with little effort and was up and running in less than an hour. The new video card is such a nice improvement over what I had. Thanks again for the help.

You can get some great deals sometimes on TigerDirect.com - Computers, Computer Parts, Computer Components & Electronics
They have lots of different computer items.
Get a video car that will match your processor, and the cards all depend on if you are a gamer, or what you do on your computer.

This case model doesnt come with the 9550, and best card offered is the 9300.

However, the model that does have the 9550 can go up to a 9500 bor 4350.

What you need to dso is open the side and get the Amps on the 12Vs, Its all on this label:

Then we can really help
Great thread. I actually have the same case as Patonb has linked above.

My one question is how can you tell what form factor the PSU is? Can we confirm that this case takes ATX12V?

Your's would be a standard ATX PSU. A micro-ATX PSU is only for tee-niney cases.
