My System Specs


If you're looking in that price range for a PSU then I'd suggest the Silverstone Olympia 650W over the Corsair. The Corsair is no slouch but it has triple rails rather than the single high amperage rail that the Silverstone uses. I wish I'd done my homework about that issue and consulted Skymtl before I bought my first PSU, the 700W OCZ gameXstream, it has four rails but now I find out they are "Virtual" which as I understand it isn't as good.

Here's a link to the Silverstone. Before you buy it I recommend you PM skymtl though and ask him if he has any recommendations. There is also a 750W model but you'll probably be fine with the 600 with your single 8800GT.
