Do you think that PSU would do a 6800 MSI 3700+ and 2gb ram?

Probably. You could get a 450W $50 one.

Someone, LONG ago, had a problem with an XFX card. That ONE card gave XFX s bad reputation. Since that little problem, the XFX name has been morphed into the "crappiest maker with which you'll always hae problems." Well, the face is that even PNY (the REAL bad brand) has a 5% failure rate. That means that one in 20 cards will fail. I like 95%. Just because one person had a problem doesn't mean that its the same for the rest of thr 19 cards.

Tell me this. If you had 40 people in a room with the same XFX card, and one of them failed, would you say that the brand sucked, even though the rest of the 39 cards were running perfectly?
Yea thanks for this info I was about to think XFX was a bad brand even though I wondered why lots of people who actually know a lot about hardware have an XFX card.

No problem, its all about human psychology. People on this Forum tend to spout out what they've heard somewhere else so one needs to come and set the facts straight once in a while.

Just as a little tidbit, eVGA is so reliable that if you had 100 people in a room with the same card, only one would fail
