    8500GT (MSI 8800GT OC soon)
    Hey all, I'm new to the forums, and I just ordered an MSI 8800GT OC from newegg.com, this one to be exact.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?nm_mc=AFC-SlickDeals&cm_mmc=AFC-SlickDeals-_-NA-_-NA-_-NA&Item=N82E16814127329

    I was wondering what kind of performance I would be getting, and how much of an upgrade that is over an 8500GT.

    More importantly, I was wondering if this power supply was adequate, and an overall good choice...

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371007

    It's an Antec 500 Watt PSU. Is the brand any good?

    Thanks in advance for all your help, and I look forward to posting here more often!

    Its a massive upgrade from the 8500 GT. A whole other level IMHO. Maybe 3x or 4x the performance, 3x at least I would think especially at higher res'.

    I have the same PSU I believe as the one you noted. 34 Amps on the 12 Volt Rail so its good to go. And yes Antecs are quality PSU's for sure. Go for it & enjoy the upgrade.:banana:
