Dude...I cant even find anything on a Hyper power supply when I google for it. Did it come with your case? If so...replace it...before something terrible happens. And what's this 18V rail?

I have the following system but not quite sure what psu i have. I bought it with the PC so i shouldn't think it's that good compared to my system. Here goes:

Windows Vista Home Premium
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ (Dual Core)
2Gig DDR RAM
250G SATA HDD
160 SATA HDD
512mb Radeon X550 Graphics card
DVD-RW

Any ideas about what kind of PSU i need?

 I've always been a Seasonic user (recently Corsair, but I understand they're basically just rebranded Seasonics). But I'm in the process of building a new system and someone recommended a Coolermaster Real Power 550W, and when I checked it out, it looked pretty good.

 Specs are:

 
E6420 w/ Zalman 7500Cu (possibly going with the new E6540 when it comes out on July 22)

EVGA nForce 680i LT

EVGA 8800GTS 320mb ACS3 KO

4gb Corsair PC6400

Creative X-Fi Extreme Gamer

I'm going to have a dual TV tuner and a load of extra case fans, but I assume they won't exactly be straining the PSU too much?

 

Since I started using Seasonic I've never really looked back, but the Coolermaster seems good, and I like their other products. Biggest thing is I'm a little strapped for cash, and the Coolermaster is about €50 cheaper... I'm willing to spend the extra money if I have to, but every little helps? Would the Coolermaster be a bad idea? 

Also, correct me if I'm wrong... but the Coolermaster kinda looks like the S12... is it just that that is the kind of "standard" design on PSUs, or am I possibly looking at ANOTHER rebranded Seasonic?

 I'm upgrading to an Intel q6600 and EVGA Intel 775 MB.  Gonna have 4 GB of DDR2  OCZ Reaper Memory PC6400.  I will be upgrading my Video Card, but for now its just an X800XL.  I have a Seasonic S12 430W PSU.  Will that be enough for when I upgrade the video card to a 9800 GTX? Or should I also be looking to upgrade the PSU? 

 

Other components:

Sony DVD-RW

 Maxtor 7l300 -300GB SATA Drive

 Seagate - 160GB SATA Drive

Do you know how many amps you get on your 12v rails?  Your system certainly won't use 430w of power, but that video card uses a good amount.  I recommend upgrading to above 500w.  The minimum recommend for the 9800GTX is 450w with 24amps on the 12v.

580w, 35amps on 12v  $59.99  (it's a good brand, I've recommended it and seen it used before)

If you want to spend a little more for Antec (a more known brand) and for more on the 12v (although 35amps is more than enough) here's a couple:

http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E16817371016 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371002

Or anything else.  Just get at least 500w and at least 29amps on the 12v.  It's good to be above the minimum recommended.

 Crisis and Der Meister - Thank you both.  I guess that I will have to upgrade the PSU before I get the new video card.  MB and CPU come first
