    hey just been reading up on alot of people asking if there psu is to blame for instability or is it suitable for running there hardware and was wondering if mine was fine, im not really a hardware guy lol i go with the price lol and what i can afford

    my pc specs are in the box thing next to my name.

    the packaging that my psu came in says it has 4 x 12Volt rails at 18amps each totallying 54amps. is that ok for my system.? and have i gor room for expansion.?

    im looking to get the BFG 9800 gx2 1024Meg. card, would that be fine.?

    thanks in advance

    Looks like you have about 550 watt psu.
    Check your config using this PSU Calculator and see what it says.
    Good luck.:)
