I am 16 years old and am building my first computer. I have one problem though---my power supply might not be able to fully power the 8800gts I'm getting. It's an Enermax Liberty 500W (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6817194003) that I bought several months ago when I thought I was going to be powering one of the 7900 series. Do you think that the Liberty can power my new system well?

Specs:
eVGA 680i SLI motherboard
C2D e6600
2GB Corsair Dominator modules
eVGA 8800gts
WD Caviar 320GB
Creative x-Fi platinum (with 5.25" drive bay)
Sony CD/DVD drive
Enermax Liberty 500W PSU

I know this power supply definitely can't power 8800gts SLI (lol), but I'll just get a new PSU if I ever want to go SLI...

Any help is greatly appreciated :D

ps-how do I enable html in my posts?
