The X8** series from ATI are very power hungry cards. YOu may experience blue screens, random reboots, game crashing. I'm pretty sure a 6800 would work on that psu. It wont run well, but it will possibly run

i would say that you would be lucky to get either card working on that PSU as they are both fairly high end cards
