Question about Intel Motherboard
Motherboard: MSI K9A2 platinum
ram: 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM
dvd-rw drives 2
HDD: 320GB 7200 3.5''
CPU: AMD ATHLON 64x2 dual core processor 5000+ 2.6GHZ
Bare minumum for a 8800gt graphics card is 450 watts BUT seeing as you have a decent gaming rig in order to squeeze every last drop of performance out of your rig you are going to want to go for
700w+ Power supply.
this is so that under high power strain (gaming) your hardware still runs at full specification rather then decreased due to power shortage.
As a side note i would reccomend going for a reliable brand such as antec or arctic when purchasing power supplies for reliability. This is because if you get a cheap power supply you may come to regret it if it breaks. shor circuiting on a cheap power supply can kill the motherboard (personal experience) and that will cost a whole lot more than an extra 20 pounds for a decent PSU.
Hope that helps.

500 watts is enough but make it sure that the power supply is dual fan to avoid over heating.
