It would be cutting it close. I would just put that $70 it costs towards a better power supply.

You have to remember it will be just powering my video card so the full 400 watts in avail, the recommend a 550 watt ps for your whole system.

Problem is nobody but futureshop in my city carries ps and a rocketfish 700 does not look like it can cut it, it has 4 rails at 18A.

It does not exceed 245 watts at max load for the video card alone .
