Default will this video card work

im thinking of getting an eVGA 512-P2-N637-AR GeForce 7950GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP KO Superclocked Video Card, but i dont know if i should save my money and buy something else. What do you guys think.

280 dollars... seems like a good deal to me, but how much money do you have on you, because if you could get it to 400 or so, you will have a much better GPU with the 8800GTS. It's Dx10 too, so there is even less need to upgrade it..

That's a good video card.

Honestly, you don't need THAT great of a PSU to power these things. What PSU do you have now?
