no. youre thinking the 350 watt that comes with the case. he has listed another, 500 watt ps that he is going to buy. but even then, i havent heard much about the 7800, but 500 might be gettin a little close. you should look into a 550 or 600 watt

Nah he wont need another power supply for the card, it has 30-32 amps on the 12v, if its the same one im thinking about. But what he may need another PSU for is the 24 pin setup the DFI board requires*

*You dont need the 24 pin PSU But it is Highly Recommended. And Dont use a 20 to 24 pin adapter, Heard that it could result in a damaged Mobo.

You also have to remember that the 7800GTX requires less power than the 6800 Ultras, which is why it is a selling point.

like Trifid said, if you get a Venice core, you can easily overclock it to at least 2.7GHZ

That's kinda a bit off to expect that high of an overclock, Nubius only got 2.575 which is unnormally low. Hell i got 2.66 with a newcastle
