    Dont get that psu, I had one of those before and even though it all looked good on paper I had many issues which buying a better psu fixed. Pay the extra £10-15, it will be worth it in the long run. These ebay sellers are also unreliable, look at the wattage in the name (650w) and then read the specs below (600w).

    regarding the gfx :

    1. I would avoid buying it from ebay as you might have issues if theres something wrong and you need to rma (personal experience).

    2. I would avoid anything with less than 512mb but if you have a tight budget than buy the 8800gt 256mb as for an extra £10-20 youll get a card thats around 50% better.

    Edit: I assume you have bought them, you can still change your mind and fill in a mutual agreement form, this way the seller gets his advertising cost back. In most cases they will agree as its easier than persuing a non-payer and losing they original cost.

    ebuyer.com selling Sapphire and HIS make 3850 for 102 and 104, but of course it's just a few pound difference. personally i used to prefer ebuyer than ebay when i was in UK two years ago....

    When playing games such as fear mp the frame rates would drop to less than 10 all of a sudden and then pickup after a while, it was absolutely unplayable.

    your PSU is a 500W if i did my math right, also there is no way that would work with 10A on the 12V, and no modern PSU has 27A on the 3.3 so my guess is that its 27A on the 12v so you should be just fine there.

    thats the power of the 12v rail by itself actully. Your CPU uses the 3.3, 5 and 12, the hard drivers and such use the 3.3 and 5.
