i think he means 8800GTX, and if it is an 8800GTX then it has to be more power, i'm not sure how much more but i keep hearing over 600watts

you do not need a 600 watt psu for the 8800gtx its not about watts its really about amps and the antec will work fine you can even add another gtx and it will still work
