You should get a better PSU such as a Fortron 450w at least.

Agreed with turtile. That power supply is becoming a popular recommendation, ever since TriEclipse's power supply guide.

I have the VX 922 monitor. . . really like it. I'm sure it will go well with the video card.

I did upgrade to a 500watt Power Supply with a cooling fan...that should be sufficient should it not?

I think that many people believe that the power supplies that come with a case are 2nd rate. Often they are cheap and not well made, although some (by companies like Antec) are probably decent. I think that most custom builders would prefer a brand name PSU (Antec, Fortron, Enermax) to go with the system. 500 Watts should be more than adequate for your system. You could try the built in power supply and see how it works for you. If you are having major problems with instability or not booting up properly, then consider a brand name PSU.

Most people think that way for one key reason, if you use a crappy PSU and it fails, it could take most of your system down with it.
