what other hardware are you using .... i put in a dvd burner and a 250 gb hdd after xmas and overloaded my 400w psu with those when i tried playing wow on my x700 ..... once i unplugged my old cd rom it worked fine .... but that might give you an idea where you stand. hope it helps.

Unfortunately, I highly doubt you will be able to use that card with that power supply. You dont have a SFF do you? Assuming you dont, getting a suitable power supply shouldn't be that difficult. Go with a reputable brand like OCZ, get something like this:

try the 520 and you should be good if you want to upgrade your hard drives or whatnot later.

I wouldnt recommend running a power hungry x850xtpe with a 350W PSU, you will more then likely notice system instability and could possibly kill something else. To be on the safe side you need a minimum 400W PSU with the +12v@26A.

im running one HDD. If i unplug One of my DVDroms, would it still not be enough? I know a guy that can sell me a great 500W for 40buck (with lights!) but is there no way i can managae it with my current PSU?
