I'm considering upgrading to one of these cards, so I'm wondering if my power supply could handle the power draw from either of them. This is from the manufacturers website, my psu is the 550w one.

Yup, you shouldn't have a problem.
5870 requires at least 40 amps, and your PSU can pump out up to 50A.
If it's 80+ and can push that many AMPS, I'm pretty sure it can handle a 5870.Originally Posted by StuffStuff1;12007659

Do you know that there is no "standard" for PSU's?
So if a manufacture made a 250W PSU they can sell it as a 500W if they wanted to.
No you still dont understand..Originally Posted by Jaguarbamf;12007702
