I was wondering this because i'm looking to upgrade my graphics card from a 9500 GT, but i want to know if this supply can handle it.

When wondering if a PSU would power your new video card, you should look at the 12volt RAIL and then look at the minimum amount of amps required to run that card and add some for other devices.

If you have a card that takes 42AMPS to run on the 12v RAIL and you have a 50AMP Rail that is on the power supply you have enough, but be warned you have 8 amps to play with, so adding new things should be done at a bare minimum. Over utilizing the PSU could damage components if there is ever a power surge. I know that a power surge could be bad for components, but an over utilized PSU heightens that risk.
