I recently bought the Geforce GTX260 which requires a PSU with a combined 12V current rating of 38A or more. My present PSU i was aware wasn going to be sufficient.

I was looking at this and presuming that the combined 12v amps is more this would suffice - OCZ GameXStream 850W PSU


Having read numerous forums with conflicting advice over whether adding the amps together was correct I was hoping for some help before I order. Presuming that this was also Sli ready and offered twin Pci x inputs that would surly be enough to supply all.

Present specs :Amd phenon II x4 965 3400Mhz, Combi Dvd and two sata drives, Case with 4 neon fans

Any help will be much appreciated

Yes the PSU that you have mentioned will work just fine with the graphics card that you have also generally we use watts as a general point of measure.
If I have replied to a topic and you reply and I haven't gotten back to you within 48 hours (2 days) then send me a P.M.
