Am I reading this correctly? Reason is I have a 425 W Power supply..I want to get an 8800 GT-a friend of a friend is selling his card since he is starting grad school. I know minimum power supply is 400 W..I have that covered..but I don't like to live that close to the edge..if max power consumption under 3D conditions is even 320 or below..I will feel safe..So am I reading it correctly? It is a quality power supply.
This was the setup for the test
Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 (3 GHz)
Motherboard Asus P5K3 Deluxe
Memory Kingston 2 x 1024 MB setup in DDR-3 800 5-5-5-15-21

I'm running a 4850 on a fairly poor 550W power supply. The 4870 does use a good 40-50W more though. I don't know much about the quality of BFG PSes (quality makes a huge difference. My 550W can't actually supply 550W like a high quality PCP&C could).
