    I've my mind set on that beast of card, now is my Seasonic S12 600 enough, I remember the old power scary stories and I have heard some guys who run these and more on a 500watt Enermax but I feel better asking.

    The power supply you have should be totally fine. Your CPU and the new card are each drawing somewhere around 130-140 watts, and if you add in another 30-40 watts for the motherboard and a few hard drives, you're still going to be using less than 325 watts.

    Plenty of power.

    I want an 8800GTX now, never noticed that they became so cheap!
