  1. 6850 will run on a 450 watt branded power supply,the 6870 will need about 500 watt.
  2. I recently upgraded to said video card, purchased http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004W2T2TM/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00 with it, runs great, no problems thus far.
  3. Corsair Builder Series CX V2 430 < that will run the 6850,but the 6870 needs more juice.

    Both cards will run great on a quality branded 350W PSU, If there's no intend for OCing .

    Ok thanks I am running 8 gigs ram and want to ugrade to 16 gigs, also to add the radeon 6870 so i guess a 700wtt psu is a safe area right?
