    Don`t buy any GTS with 320 or 640mb. Its old now, and compared to the 2nd version(GT) uses more electricity(sounds daft, but if its on 24/7 you`ll notice)
    8600 is crap.

    Its up to you at the end of the day, personally, I`d wait for the 9*** series, its not going to be long, or look at Radeon 3850/3870(Not as good as 8800GT though).
    This should help http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/graphics-car...ew-29792-6.html.

    As Festo said, make sure your PSU has enough amps/watts to deliver.

    yeah, i think you should atleast have a 350W PSU, altough most modern cases come with 500W, wich should be more then enough (except ofcourse if you're going for some SLI configuration)

    i guess you could start adding power supplu usage of all your hardware.....

    or just buy a 500W power supply. it doesn't cost that much and you know you don't have to worry about that part.

    Open up you pc, and look on the side of the PSU. Look for the the amps delivered on the 12v rail. If you`ve got a decent one, you`ll have 2 12v rails. Add them together and thats it.
    Depending on the card you want, you`ll need up to around 30amps for a single card, and more if you want SLI/Crossfire. Also, you should use this to work out your wattage requirements http://www.extreme.outervision.com/p...ulatorlite.jsp
    Spend a few dollars and it`ll work out your amperage requirements too
    DO NOT go out and buy a cheap 500w PSU, it will be shit, and if it dies, they have a nasty habit of taking the rest of the system with them. Also, think of your electric bill. A PSU thats efficent will save you money in the long term.

    Google PSU reviews, they`ll help you understand more.
