~500w

~450w is a good place to start, but it NEEDS to be a power supply of at least decent quality.

if you tell us where you live we can make specific recommendations.

I'm running an HD 6870 using a power supply with 39A.

I upgraded from a GTS 250 to the HD 6870. It seems you are upgrading from the GTS 250 too. If you power supply could handle the GTS 250 it will handle the HD 6870 just fine.

What was wrong with your XFX card if you dont mind me asking, the 2gb version of the 6870 is only $210 us and has been a great card for me so far. I have never had any problems with any of my XFX cards and there have been many.
