Yeah, they're... mediocre at best. Not quite as awesome as their budget motherboards...

Yeah, I kind of stretched my budget on the video card, so I had to cut mack on the money I could devote to the psu otherwise I would like to get a better one. Im hopping this x1900xt outperforms my 7800gt by far. It's like twice the price unfortunetly but im pretty sure it will be worth it.

...You have a 7800GT and you're getting at x1900xt? Why would you do that? What game doesn't your video card run on high settings?

I don't understand why you'd want to upgrade a 7800GT this early. It's technically 'top of the line', what will it not do?
