Power requirements GTX 285

Hello,
I am looking for a cost effective PSU and i dont plan on OCing, though i am gettting the GTX285. The power calculter says i require 370W, so im thinking Gigabyte ODIN 470W, or 585W. However someone told me there is not enough 6pins? is my ODIN 470 fine?

  1. Forget about the GTX285 and grab a HD5850. An 80+ 500W PSU of a quality brand will do for HD5850.

    HD5750 and HD5850 are the only reasonably priced DX11 card IMO.
  2. ^+1.
    HD 5850 is a much better deal.

    Its power consumption is lesser than a GTX 285.
    You will be fine with any quality 500W PSU as andy said!!
