Just bought an ATI Radeon HD 4890 PCI-e 1g GDDR5 video card and need to upgrade the power supply since the current one is my HP Pavilion a1600n is only a 300w power supply.

The card needs a 500w or better power supply with two 75w 6pin PCI-e power connectors.

My question is if anyone can recommend a power supply to purchase to fit the needs of the new power card and fits in the Hp Pavilions a1600n case?
EDIT: I will be using just the one video card in the computer.

From the cross reference I found, it is just a standard ATX size PSU. Fortunate.

I would suggest something with a little more power, just in case you want to add anything else.

Thanks for the replys, sorry i havent got back to the posts sooner.

I have done some looking around and decided to go with This Power Supply hoping i read it right and it has the connections needed for the new Video Card.
Just want to be able to get the computer set, video card/PSU last two adds for now. :thumbsup:
