Is this an ok psu for asus eah6850

hi, i recently bought an asus eah6850 direct cu and i was wondering whether my corsair cx500(builder series v2) is strong enough to power this card.Asus box states that i should have a psu with 12V current rating of 40A.My corsair cx500 has 34A on +12V.
Am i ok?

thanks in advance

    Yes my friend has the same type of card but with 1 PCI-E connector and it works perfect and he is using a Antec 380 watt.
  3. 6850 uses one 6pin power connector and is the most high performance lowest power consumption card you can buy. I will never understand all this BS and paranoia around today over PSU requirements and PSUs in General get a good quality one from a recognized aftermarket manufacturer and be done with it no worries.

    the particular asus eah6850 model i got uses two 6pin connectors
  5. that card I think is one of the best 6850s; it can overclock really well if you bump the voltage up. I ran crossfire with two of these with a 550 watt psu (antec ???) and i5 750. i had to use those molex to pcie connectors for the 4x 6pins. enjoy
