A friend of mine would like to change his videocard to a 5850 and he is wondering if his 460 superb would be enough for his setup. I think it will but I am not an expert of psus so I would welcome any suggestions.

Ati recommend a 500w or greater PSU for the 5850. 460w might be close enough though just depends how much other stuff its running and weather hes overclocked.
If you get a VX450 from Corsair, it can run up to 700Ws and still be fine


But I recommend the TX650W. I have one and thing is a beast!

That gigabyte superb 460 has a combined 25A on the +12V rails, that is cutting it a bit short really. Look at acheap upgrade like the coolermaster realpower, the 500W one has dual +12V Rails with 18A on each..
