i think 450 should be bare minimum for the 2900pro, but it requires 2 6-pin connections, so if you dont' wanna bother w/ overclocking, i say stick w/ the 3850, its still an incredibly good card

nah the 3850 doesnt use too much power it all, it'll do just fine

if you were getting the 2900pro, then you would have concerns
