3870x2 and '5850 Toxic' Power Consumption

Does the Sapphire 5850 Toxic Edition use more power than a 3870x2 (stock clocks)? The reason I'm asking is that I'm looking to upgrade, have decided on a 5850 and want to make sure I can power it.
I am confident I can power a stock 5850, but unsure as to whether I have enough power for the Toxic edition. Thanks in advance.
