I just read the specs on that PSU again... It only has 18A rails, is that going to be enough for this card? Ugh.. shoulda gone with the corsair.

the antec psu will handle that card well. that psu would probably handle two 4850's crossfired, but that might be pushing it.

If it makes you feel better i used to have a whole overclocked system containing, overclocked X2, volt modded 8800gs + aftermarket HSF, 4gb overclocked ram, couple fans, ultra 120 heatsink with fan on a antec 380w earthwatts, they are amazing power supplies, i ran a 4870 in there too.
