:hello:  Hey everyone, I'm wondering if my PSU will be sufficient for my build and specifically, my Radeon HD 6870.

I've checked Here, http://forum-en.msi.com/faq/article/printer/power-requi... and it says 28amps and 500w

My current power supply is an Enermax EG465P-VE
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The 12v rail is rated at 33amps with total output at 460w


I'll be running
i5 3750k
8gb ram
ASRock z77 Pro4
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

7200 500gb hdd
Dvd/rw drive

Will my PSU be sufficient or should i look into a new one?

It will handle it people are running that card on Antec EA380 and Corsair CX430! The only thing to worry about possible is the age of the PSU and that it has passive pfc (little voltage switch).

By my calculations, the HD 6870 should only draw around 13A at +12V. (155W at max/+12V= 12.9A)
That still leaves 20A on the +12V rail for other components. So, you will be quite safe.
