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.

Here is the Toxic compared to a stock 5850. Only 20W more at max, so I'd say you are ok.
