The Silent Pro M 700 is a pretty good Enhance unit, a massive upgrade over the trashy PSU you're currently running.. but it's also far too large for your setup, all you need is a solid 400/450W unit.. I'd suggest a Rosewill Capstone unit.

the card recommends a 500w power supply for the whole system, which is a bit overkill considering a 6870 @ stock is about ~130w tongue.gif the rosewill capstone 450w would be perfect for you

Yeah, the 500 watt recommendation is meant for the whole system, and as already stated a 6870 doesn't draw too much north of 100 watts anyways, especially under gaming conditions. Also, 500 watts for said recommendation is itself an overkill figure to factor in consumers who purchase really cheap, crappy power supplies that can't actually pull their rated wattage. So a quality 400-450 watt PSU would be perfect for this setup.

The reason it doesn't draw north of 100 watts is because it is native to the east. Everyone knows that gpus don't pull much from the north
