i am looking to invest in upgrading my pc to an AMD Phenom ii 550be in the next month and will hopfully be overclocking it to atleast 3.7 and hoping to get a 285 gtx soon after that but i have currently got a 750w win power psu with a 12v 33amp rail. will this be enough juice to power my upgrade?

if not then could somebody suggest a relletivley cheap psu that will be good enough.

cheers

If budget is a limit, I'd get an OCZ StealthXStreme or an Antec Earthwatts 500. That PSU will not be pretty if you go anywhere near it's rated wattage.

For a GTX 285, I'd get a nice Corsair 620W Modular or even a HX650.
Although I'd take a 4890 over a GTX 285. There's new cards coming out soon so I doubt you'll even consider a GTX 285.
