Is A 500 watts psu compatible?
I have a radeon 6990 hd from ATI and I was wondering will my 500w power supply work with this card without causing any problems
No it is to small! http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm
No I recommend a 700+ watt PSU . A seasonic, antec, XFX or a corsair(not cx series) brand.
Here's a link to a website which should help with any future PSU choices for graphics cards:)

sure, but what are you going to use to power the best of the rig?
http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/radeon_hd_6990_review,10.htmlQuote:Measured power consumption Radeon HD 6990 (unlocked mode)
System in IDLE = 193W
System Wattage with GPU in FULL Stress = 526W
Difference (GPU load) = 333W
Add average IDLE wattage ~ 37W
Subjective obtained GPU power consumption = ~ 370 Watts
Radeon HD 6990 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 750 Watt power supply unit.
