I've got my 6800 vanilla on 300, but it's an Antec. :D

Thats a high end card, i really would not recomend it. Either upgrade to a better PSU or risk it. But risking it could fry quite a few components.

Any PCI-E machine is already strained on 300w.

Really? I didnt know ATI brought out AGP versions of their Cards. Did Nvidia do the same?
