You mean 5770?? cause 110 for a 5870s phenominal!

But your 450W psu should run it with no issues, But updating to a quality psu is never a bad idea.

Sorry I meant ATI Radeon HD 6850 for 110 about 180 US... was that a bad move?

Nope, its actually a good card too, Because ATI/AMD changed their numbering ways, i forot the 68XX cards are on par with the 57XX cards.

So, good find, and good card, you'll enjoy it.

They are on par as in midrange for the 6000 series, but they are actually better than their 5800 equivalents.
