I'm looking to buy a ATi Radeon 6790 for my Dell Dimension 9200 so I can run high-end games like Il-2 Cliffs of Dover. What I need to know is what PSU does this card require to run? (Just want to get an idea before I go out and buy it)

*Please note I cannot power the machine up until Monday/Tuesday (when the video cable arrives) and I am having to work on visual reference to regonise what's what inside the machine..
