i used the extreme power supply calculator and my current system minus the video card takes 306watts. the 570 takes 350 on max load. 300+350=650

looks like i need a bigger psu

lol what a troll, judging by his avatar he's probably 14-16 years old

probably trying to justify the 6870's that he begged his parents for

maybe if you washed a few more dishes and got an A on your report card, they woulda got you a 570
