Default Enough.....correct?

I got my 7900gtx finally. It's minimum psu requirement is 450watts. I bought the card and never really gave my psu a second thought. LOL

Anyway, I have a "PC Power and Cooling Turbo Cool 510 ATX12v 2.0 PSU" It was meant to run SLI, so I figure it won't have any trouble with my 7900gtx..........correct?

definitely don't get your hopes up. thats probably a single rail psu which won't carry that much overall on the 12v

Are you guys sure my PSU is enough? Some goon just told me that my PSU was not up to par for the 7900gtx. LOL Now Im second guessing myself.
