I'm going to be ordering an Antec 900 Case, but with all of the fans the thing has, Im wondering if Im going to need a new PSU.

I don't notice any "struggling" from the PSU, but since it's a 475, and since newer video cards are probably going to require a bit more then that, I'm a little concerned about the future. Also, it would be far easier to get the new PSU now, and hook it up with my new case rather than waiting to get it, and having to do all the just delightful wire managing all over again.

My current computer specifications are as follows : 4G Ram, 9800 GT Graphics card, 3.0 GB core 2 duo processor, 475 Power supply, I also have one of those giant zalman copper fan heatsinks over my processor.

Again, the Antec 900 has a lot of fans; should I be worried; or should I just get a new PSU when I need a new video card (in the distant future, probably)

You should have enough for now, so just worry about it when you're upgrading cpu/video.

Thanks, I'll ask a bit of a followup. Apparently, my motherboard has another PCI-E slot. I'm getting a replacement 8800 (or 9800 depending on what EVGA sends back) in the mail some time in the future. (I bought a 9800GT right off to replace the broken 8800) Would I need to get a new power supply in order to use two of the video cards I've listed?
