I'm looking to upgrade to this card:

X1900XT

It says that it requires 450w powersupply, and I currently have:

480 Watt
(It was more when I purchased it about a year ago)

But I'm not sure if I should upgrade to something like this:

500 Watt

Could I please get some of your opinions? Thanks a lot.:eek:

Both of those are pretty junky power supplies.

What are the specs for the rest of your system? I think if you're going to spend $200 on a video card you should spend enough money on the PSU to protect it properly.

Rosewill is a low end power supply. I would suggest you look at a PSU manufactured by
PC Power & Cooling, Antec, Seasonic, Enermax, Cooler Master, or Thermaltake.

Also, the board you referenced indicates there is a PCI-e connector on the board and the Rosewill you chose does not indicate that it has a PCI-e connector.

I'm positive I have a PCI-e slot. I'm currently using a eVGA 6800GS, running on a PCI-e slot.
