    Default another enough juice thread

    E8400
    2x2gig 1000mhz ddr2
    250gb HDD
    DVD Burner
    8800GTS 512mb
    couple of 120mm's

    I have the corsair 520w modular PSU, and I'm going to be purchasing an ATI 4870 soon. Do I have to pick up a new power supply while I'm at it?

    Just making sure. You can never be too sure.

    With Corsair PSU's you're almost sure.
    Keep your PSU, you'll be fine.

    Corsair's goodness is offset by ATI's powerhogness. Anyone remember the 2900XT? :P

    Well, the 2900XT was criminal when it came to that, I think it even pulled more than a HD3870X2.
