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?

The only thing to worry about possible is the age of the PSU and that it has passive pfc (little voltage switch). | Report abuse Rugger Power supply Master May 31, 2012 12:52:10 PM +1 with Rolli59 | Report abuse Best solution clutchc Power supply Master May 31, 2012 3:38:19 PM 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. | Report abuse zackn06 May 31, 2012 7:37:12 PM Best answer selected by zackn06. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>HD 6870 12v power> Related ressources: ForumHD 6870 power supply Forum460 Watt delta power supply for Radeon HD 6870 ForumWill this power supply be okay for the XFX Radeon HD 6870 ForumCan this PSU power a HD 6870 ?
