    Yes Asus make a gt, though the warranty isn't lifetime, this is my third Asus card and never had any problems with any of them. If you feel more secure with the lifetime warranty I would go with that.

    The psu, once again I have never heard of the brand (not available here in Australia as far as I can tell) but dual 12 volt rails is good, the amps seem a little low per rail but being dual rail I guess you should be fine. You may want to look for a True Power brand e.g. Antec. One thing to be sure to do when you install the 6800gt is have a dedicated power line to the card e.g. dont have any other devices drawing power from the same line.

    EDIT: The third comment on the Newegg site may be cause for some concern.

    No good 500W PSU will ever go for so little. Try something 450-500W from a better company, such as Antec, Enermax, Fortron, or OCZ. You should expect to pay at least $50 + shipping for a good model.

    well here is another power supply from the same company but instead of one fan it has 2 blue ones http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182002

    plus it has good reviews look
    Mid-ranged price, high-end product

    Pros:
    Powerful
    Reliable
    Inexpensive
    More than adequate +12v rail
    nicely wrapped wires
    Quiet,even with the fan at high

    Cons: Heats your case a little bit

    Other Thoughts: Although I listed the heat factor as a con, its not very bad.I am running an Athlon64 3500+(overclocked to 2618mhz), with 2 optical drives, 2 HDD's, 6800GT (overclocked to 410x1120mhz), 7 fans, Audigy 2 Platinum Pro, a 12" cold cathode, and several USB devices.This PSU handles the load like a champ,and is powerful enough to support future upgrade which might consume even more power,like a new video card.Very reliable and powerful.I will be water-cooling my machine soon, and this PSU will also handle that load.This PSU will not disappoin

    $70 from the manufacturer means nothing. If Newegg sells it for $40, it's crap. I'd say it's crap anyway, based on user reviews. The only reason its score is as I as it is is because 80% of the reviews basically said "it works" and gave it a five star rating out-of-the-box. A bunch of other people had failures or noticed problems, but averages mean that you have to actually read the reviews to realize just how bad it is.

    Anyway, just get this. Hell, that would probably run my system, which uses a 6800GT and an overclocked Athlon 64.

    You'll probably be fine, but just so understand, the warranty only covers the PSU. If that thing blows and takes out half your hardware, you're SOL. That probably won't happen, but it's worth mentioning.
