The 6950 needs 30 amps to run, if you don't oc you should be able to run the 6950.

Would I still be able to OC as long as I don't flash a 6970 bios, or touch the voltage controls? I would probably just use the AMD Overdrive tool. Not looking to push huge numbers, just need a card for the long run.

In certain circumstances can also be running overclocking
