HD 7950 Power Consumption is ~170 Watts?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I know that the 7800 series have low power consumption and you could use them on a 400 Watt 80+ PSU.
Today I checked the wattage of the HD 7950 and I found this : http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/his_radeon_7950_x_iceq_review,6.html
this site says that the system, running at FULL stress only uses 305 watts.
Is this true?
I have a SilverStone Strider Essential 400W 80+ PSU, will this graphics card work on my system?
I use an i7 2600K, not planning to overclock it.
I ran a Gigabyte GTX 460 on it, not problems.

My old overclocked 7950, a sapphire dual-x consumed ~330w at the wall measured by a killawatt. I know it was overclocked but I don't think that made the power consumption double...
