What size fans?

Are they the PSU Fan, or other system fans?

 

With all that the 7900GS came out at 271 Watts, and the 1950XT at 291.

The 1950 would be much to close for my liking, however, i personally would be confortable running a 7900GS under that PSU, assuming the rail puts out 20 AMPS.

 

Even though they recommend something higher, it's honestly overkill most of the time.

As for the accuracy of this calculator, i determined what PSU i would be getting by plugging in my system specs on it, and it was dead on in terms of what it said, and what my power consumption truely is.

Herm, i looked at your Pittest, and plugged everything in with a 7900GS, it only came up with a 293 now after the fans, and realized you have 4 DIMMS of ram...what am i missing?

And also, plugging in the same set-up with a 8500GT came up with 288.

 

I would say the 7900GS is a go-go.
