Im upgrading my 260 gtx(not the core 216) to a ATI 5850 I currently run a BFG 550 Watt PSU and everything runs fine. I also have a Core 2 Quad 8400, 3 gigs of RAM, one sata HDD and a IDE DVD-+RW Im wondering will my PSU power the 5850 adequately. If not, I would appreciate a link posted to a quality, good priced power supply. THANKS!!!!
