word thanks i like to stick with nvidia but ati is still pumping out good graphics cards, so i will check it out and as far as power supply goes i will check out a higher quality one maybe wait a month and get a new one.... how do you guys think this will handle games like Modern Warfare 2 or Americas Army or CounterStrike Source? thanks everyone
