AMD HD6850 on a 300W PSU?

I'm getting an AMD HD6850. I notice on their site that their recommended minimum PSU is 500W. I've got a 300W PSU. Is it really a problem? I've never even thought about PSUs before until I saw that spec, then opened my case and saw it's 300W. Not sure if I should upgrade it or not. Would appreciate your thoughts.

System is a quad core @ 2.66 with Windows 7 32 bit. Screen is a 24" @ 1920x1080. The HD6850 is I think factory overclocked.

300w is too low for that card you must need at least 550w.if you wanna go to overclock then get 650w.otherwise 550w works fine.....

Okay. Thanks. Just saw a decent Coolermaster 550W online. So it's fine. Thanks.
