Default hiper good psu?

Is this hiper psu enough to run a 8800gts 320bit gfx card and be reliable. Ive heard hiper is a really good brand and trustworthy.

thx for comments

Yes, It's an excellent PSU, and will be plenty of power.

i don't really see any evidence to say hiper power supplies are going down in quality on the whole . the closest i saw was you saying
wow the 5th case in which hiper disappoint's
which really doesn't sound that bad . personally though hiper isn't that high on my list of preferred manufacturers anyway. i'm partial to Antec, PCPnC and Fortron.

Just get a 450w FPS for that much if you don't plan on going SLI with your cards. As a 450w FPS is plenty enough for that.

Antec 900 Case
EVGA 750i FTW Mobo
4x1GB of G.skill DDR2-800
