The requirements say that it needs a minimum of 400watts with 12V @ 26+ Amps. I don't want to buy a $xxx PSU that will not work. The ones that I have looked at that are dual 12V only are at 19A but if there SLI I am sure there designed for new cards. I just don't want to waste my money.

I understand that, I am trying to find out the answer right now, either wait for me to find it, find out yourself or wait for someone else to tell you.

Im all for saving money and getting exactly what you need, but patience my freind.

Will this work? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182009

And thank you Ste for helping me with my questions seeing how there seems to be no one else.

EDIT

So far this is going to replace the other Rosswill I was looking at, because it has 24pin instead of 20pin main power.

Ok, I am almost positive that a PSU with dual rails will support that Card, please don't buy rosewell it is regaurded as cheaply made, the one I suggested first will do.

separte rails will do because 1 rails goes to CPU and 1 to motherboard, however the 26AMps was reccomended for having just 1 rail because, everything else in the computer would run off that one rail thats why they reccomended at least 26 Amps, but if it has dual rails then itll be fine because 1 of them is dedicated to CPU the other to mobo and other components it will be fine. I reccomend you take my fiurst suggestion I think it was the Antec truepower Atx 2.0 550 watts, ( i think).

Both are good, I just suggested looking into one with dual 12V rails cause its a newer technology.

The answer is money. I don't even know if I can get a copy of XP so that might add another 90 bucks. I could look at other RAM though.
