In IGN's review of the 6800 reference card they stated that the suggested power supply requirement was 480W but that they ran the test on theyre 400W power supply with no problems.

How bout instead of buying a powersupply how about upgrade or change out case with antec performace plus that comes with 430watt supply for 120 shipped

I see alot of people with them thermaltake cases but i dont see anything special about them but it has fan controls and light up case nothing in the performace range in my book. I think my antec out performs thermaltake anyday. (Im not knocking anyone who does have or likes thermaltake but i seen it first hand with my other computer system)
