Here you go

Overclocking - ASUS GeForce GTX 590 Overclocking Follow-Up | [H]ard|OCP

I would go with a 750W as a rock bottom minimum, a 850 would be better.

Figured so. It's kind of a fantasy.. but i get quite a bit of money as it's my 'big 18th' bday this year. So a nice GPU could be coming my way ready for Battlefield 3

^^ Pretty good haul.

Kman, just sell your PSU on some forums for like $50, your 470 for around the $200~220 mark or whatever comparible prices are for you silly crumpet munchers and then put that towards a new PSU and the gtx590.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

Hah, lucky you :P All I got for my 18th was 50 ($80-ish). I mean, it's nice that they gave me something, and I know I shouldn't complain when there's people much worse off, but it was still pretty disappointing. Especially when my mum makes 43k ($70k).

Edit: lol, I really am a whiny arse XD
