Do you guys think a Cooler Master Elite 460 will power a Sapphire 6850?

Here are the rest of my specs:

Biostar A880G+ microATX
2 x 2GB DDR3
500GB 7200RPM SATA HDD
DVD/CD Drive

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817171046

What I'm planning on buying: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102908

Thanks

nope but look into these

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139017

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371029

these are quality products that are enough for the 6850

the elite is an old outdated design thats been heavily over rated

Ok, thanks.

How would I calculate the total amps on the 12v rails? For example, I think the 6850 requires 24(?)A. Does that mean a PSU with 2 x 12V at 18A is equal to 1 x 12V at 36A?

Since, I'm going to have to buy a new PSU anyway, I've decided to buy one with a little more juice. How does this look? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139004

Any final recommendations before I seal the deal?
