    Hi,
    I got a bigger screen (asus vw222u) and due to my specs i really need a new videocard.Atm i can't go for a new rig but i can afford a psu + card combo.
    I found a cheap xigmatek and i was thinking of an 275 or 4890 for video.
    Is it too much for my current rig? (I aim to play at 1600x1200)

    Regards,
    Colectionaru

    Yeh a GTX275 or HD4890 would do fine for that resolution.

    The PSU looks good enough for either card.

    Meh, everyone's gettin' into the psu market nowadays:D

    Guess it's just a popular thing to do:p


    I'd go for Corsair...

    I think that xigmatek looks nice and with a 275 will run very nicely at 1600x1200 indeed :)

    corsair 650w or antec are other good choices.

    Thanks guys ,
    I'm an rpg addict but if i can (my hardware allow it :D ) i go for shooters and rest as well.
    I'm trying to quit wow and with all the possibilities unlocked by the new videocard maybe i will .I've tried falout 3,mass effect and a ton of new releases over previous months but i don't like it medium-low details...(i even have problems in gothic 3)
    I stopped between xigmatek and corsair 650w models because those i found with good prices here (80-90 euros) .

    I normally wouldn't recommend PSU's I'm not familiar with but that Xigmatek looks pretty good & should work nicely with either card. I upgraded from an overclocked 8600 GTS to my 8800 GT & was really pleased (2x performance or better upgrade for me). You are going to be blown away!
