16A on the 12v Rails? you definitely need a PSU upgrade

but I see you have an Asus P5K SE Board (its a P35 board which is pretty decent)

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:

The mobo is fairly new, comparatively - just about the whole thing fried about a year ago - So in laymen's terms, what should i ask for when buying a new power supply? If i went ahead and grabbed a 8800GT, what should i ask for - or look for - when i go out to buy a PSU? Its probably a good idea for me to get one anyway considering what's running in my box at the moment.

Keeping in mind i'll probably be adding graphics cards (SLI or not) harddrives and so on in the future, what would a good PSU be (again, in laymen's terms) with that in mind?
