    Well most cards GeForce 7600 GT cards sell for about $110. Since his is used I would say about $75, because XFX cards come with the double warrantey.

    If your talking about SLI at this card level your best bet would be to get 1 higher quality card (the best your budget permits) as opposed to 2 lower level cards.

    XFX GeForce 8600GT 256M DDR3 Dual DVI TV Out for $186, would be the better of those three cards and it should be a good card.

    400W should be good but to be safe I'd get a 500W. Either way a 400W from a good company like Antec would be fine. Also if you have your location listed I wouldn't have recommended something you couldn't buy. Sorry about the confusion.

    You could if you want to, but it's always nice to have a backup just in case. Less hassle if you know someone and handle like a private sale.

    Over here average price $45-60 us $

    At this point XP is still better for gaming even though you have a DX10 card. I upgraded to Vista Home Premium 3 months ago and for me it's an improvement over XP. Keep in mind you need fairly new hardware to support it. 2GB ram, 256mb dedicated DirectX10 video card for optimum performance. As for waiting for a service pack that's up to you, but I've read there may not be one (like for xp sp2) per say since Microsoft seems to be issuing updates piecemeal to lower costs. Anyway if you do upgrade I would suggest a clean install over an upgrade to avoid problems and to start fresh. All of your data and programs would have to be re-installed though so backups would be needed. lol
