lol It'll work alright! It'll work even if you throw 3 GTX 295's in there!

Seriously though, that PSU is totally overkill for your PC with a GTX 260. Save money and get the 680W model......on second thought even that is overkill, the 550W one will suffice too but you can get the better product just in case.

Check how much that PSU can output on the +12V rails, then check what's the recommended output for a GTX260. If it's more, then it should suffice.

P.S. If you have money to spend then it'd be better to go for a more renowned brand like Corsair or Antec. I'm certain a Corsair 550W could easily take that much load.

Actually if you can buy those 2 then it'll be much better to get something like a GTX285 and a 600W Corsair or Antec.

Agreed, but I'd advise the GeForce GTX275 (or better yet, grab a cheap but decent GeForce 8800GT/9800GT or equivalent temporarily, and then ugrade to a GeForce GTX3xx when they come out). The Geforce GTX275 has a bit less than the GeForce GTX285's performance, but the cost decrease is exponentially greater than the performance difference. It's kind of like the GeForce 6800GT versus the GeForce 6800 Ultra, and the GeForce 8800GT versus the GeForce 8800GTX. The latter was always the faster one, but the former was really close, but costs alot less.
