Default Power Supply Question

I currently have an Antec Smart Blue 350w power supply, which is quite a nice power supply despite the fairly low wattage. What i was wondering is if this would be an adequate power supply to sustain a 6800gt. Im currently running a p4 3ghz, 1gb ram, 128mb 9800pro, 160gb HD, 2 Dvd-r drives, etc. Everything runs perfectly with my current psu, but dont know if it would be able to stand a 6800 gt

What are the amps on the 12v rail, and i doubt it will be enough.

I run my system off of a Antec 330watt true power with (AMD 64 3000, 1.5gb ram (4 sticks) and a 6800, rest in the sig.) It would take it, but I wouldn't recomend it, as it will put a high load on the PSU. It will be better than a cheap 600 watt one though.
