HP dvd 1260
400w psu (going to buy a 500 or 600 one along the card)

  2. If your 400w psu is a quality unit, you won't need a new power supply.

    A 6850 is not really a upgrade from a 5830 though.

    I dont own either of the cards yet and my psu is a generic one so I will have to buy a new one
  4. what make and model of PSU do you currently have? it may be enough to run a 6850.
