Default Help choosing a Power Supply for Geforce 9600GT

Im finally gonna buy a new graphics card, i dont need a very high end card, so i decided to buy the 'KFA2 GeForce 9600 GT Video Card - OC, 512MB' for a fairly cheap price (KFA2 GeForce 9600 GT Video Card - OC, 512MB GDDR3, PCI Express 2.0, SLI Ready, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV, HDMI Support 96GFF6HUUEXV at but i need to change my PSU also, now i have 250 Watt and i dont know mutch about PSU's,etc. Is this one (Ultra LS600 Lifetime Series 600W Power Supply - ATX, SATA-Ready, PCI-Express at compatible with the GPU, it needs a 6-pin PCI ExpressR supplementary power connector -or- Two 4-pin MolexR supplementary power connector, im not sure...

BTW: i now have a ATI 1600PRO 256mb in the computer, its a great card, can play the latest games on 1024x768 on medium/high settings. I see in the Ati Catalyst that there's a option to OC Overdrive or something but i never turnt it on because i think my current PSU isnt powerfull enough, i have a Q6600 CPU and 2gigs of ram.

Not a bad price personally would of got this one though as it has better reviews; - MSI N9600GT 512M OC GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

That is an excessive wattage for your usage you only need a 400W or 500W just so that you have 200W headroom for upgrades and just incase scenarios. There is a power supply guide on here already; (you would be a low end system)

Dude, salty, thats a great psu, 600w for 35 bucks? That will last him through at least a few upgrades.
Nothing to see here.
