    Hi
    I am going to purchase a nividia geforce 8800 gt graphics card but i need to upgrade my psu first as it has no 6-pin pci express connector. Well ive seen this one on ebay for a rather good price and was wondering if anyone would spare a second to have a look at it and say weather they'd recomend me buying this to run my rig with the graphics card i want or if not any other psu they'd recomend.
    All help will be appriciated.
    The listing say's its a: SILENT Win Power 700W ATX 20 & 24-pin Power Supply Unit

    And here's the link:

    Id just like to say that the seller is good as i bought the whole electoni'cs side of my rig of him and it works perfectly.

    You may be better off buying a name brand quality PSU. Something like a Corsair HX520 or HX620 would work very well for you.
