The power supply comes with the case. The case is....

no i don't think so... I beleieve the 7*** series needs at leasts a 450 watt.... Sorry.

But you could get an Antec TruePower II 550 Watt... or anything Antec. They're a good brand

I put your specs in there and got 380W, but thats cutting it pretty close. When you upgrade your computer next you're gonna go over that. For now it will be fine, but your best bet it upgrade to a 500W sometime soon.

Yea you'd be pushing it with that PSU. I'd stick with 500W and above to be sure.

just got a 7800 gt and it didnt run on my 420w case power supply, if it has the 6 pin cable for the vid card it might work but you are better off just upgrading now, i suggest the fortron on newegg just got it and it has nice 12v rails (x2)
its definately a nice ps and it will work great wit your set up
