What is your current power supply brand and model? A link would be nice too.

It makes no sense to buy a video card that that the PSU cannot handle.

I agree with jag
if you have a 6 pin on the PSU I would look at the 6850
5830 power to performance is bad.
6850 is a much better card.

Also for 209 before MIR you can do better than a 2GB 6870.

You don't need a $120 750w psu for a single card. Or even a mid-range crossfire/sli setup (see my sig). For $300 (including psu), I'd be looking at a 6950 or 560ti.

6950:

I spent about 2 minutes searching, so you may be able to find better deals, but this will perform a lot better than a gts550. Don't get me wrong, the psu is very important, but there are quality units in the $50-60 range. There's no need to overspend and downgrade your gpu. And you can probably still crossfire 6950s on that power supply.
