Default 6800GS Power Supply Req.

I've been asking a lot of these questions lately. What are the power supply requirements of the normal 6800GS? Any thing like "12V current rating of 18A or more"? All I know is that I've got a 350W PSU, and that the eVGA version of the GS sucks up less power than the BFG version.

I don't see how that pertains to my question, but I asked something similar to this, and they said the only way to check is to open up the case. No programs.

the power ratings are sticker on the side of power supply
other way is to go to the store u got the computer from and look at similar setup
or find a model or case online and look at specs
as for the topic starter i say go directly to manufacturer,s page and download a manual usually it has all the specs at the end of manual or any other similar video card by different manufacturer
