You can subtract about 100 from what newegg's power supply calculator recommends and you'll still be ok

yep the gtx 550ti is roughly similar to the 6850 (~100w)

stock 2500k is what, 60w? 1.3v = 80-85w, 1.4v = about 100w?

anyway these are stress tests so i dont think youll even break 200w in games

It's still good to know that under stress tests your total load is still below rated specs. And I thought the 550ti equivalent was the 6770? At least their price points are similar.
