4870 PSU question

So I just bought a Sapphire 4870 1gb
my specs currently are an AMD 6000+, 4 gigs DDR1066, and a 9800GT.
Do you think my hec 585 PSU would be enough when i switch video cards or is it a problem waiting to happen? ty

  1. It looks like it has 39W on the 12V rails combined, it'll run. BUt you'd might consider a Corsair PSU.
  2. ah thank you
  3. ^^^^

    I think he meant 39A (amps).

    If what he states is true, then it should work since a stock speed HD 4870 consumes about 135w or 11.3A under load.
