    you said you dont play games on your computer right, so why do you want to upgrade your video card

    The 8800 requires a 400 watt power Supply minimum so the power supply you have wont cut it, the 8600 requires 300 watt minimum so your current supply would run the card but it's right on the limit and it's best to have power left over so I wouldn't recommend that either.

    any way may i ask why you want to upgrade if you dont game as the card you have would do most things perfectly fine. .
