Default New PSU

I'm thinking about getting a new 6800GS, and I've been hearing 350W isn't enough to hold it. PSU Suggestions?

pcpowerandcooling.com has a method of determining how much power you need. Go there and check it out.

Noone asked him what his other components are? AND noone asked him how much hes willing to spend. Both need to be answered to make an accurate choice.

How much you want to spend?
