Is my PSU good enough for a 5850?

Hey guys,

I'm not sure on how to read the specs on this thing but I have an Earthwatts 500 EA-500D and wanted to know if I am good enough to get a 5850 or should I upgrade.

Here is a pic of the specs:



Please let me know because I don't want to get it and something goes wrong.

Thanks!

  4. Yeah, that should easily handle the HD5850 which is quite low power for its performance. You should even have a lot of leeway to OC the card.
