Hi all,

I have an Asus P5K-E motherboard and an Antec - Earthwatts 650W max Power Supply, the new GPU will be a XFX Radeon HD 6870 1gb video card (seen here.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... )

Also, don't know if it matters, but have 4gb of G.SKILL DDR2 PC2 8500 memory, western digi 500gb 32mb cache hard drive, and a barracuda 250gb hard drive.

So the question is, will I have plenty of power to run this new vid card?

Yup. The HD6870 will run off of a good 450W PSU, and Antec isn't a bad brand.
