the 6800 blatently says in the manual that it needs atleast 400w, and they generally are implying a true power 400w with a good strong +12v rail to boot

according to this: http://www.jscustompcs.com/power_sup...or.php?cmd=AMD

a 400w PSU could easy handle a 6800gt.

but if your running generic, i wouldnt trust a generic ever.
Core 2 Duo E6400, DFI Infinity 975X/G, 2x 512mb DDR2 667mhz, Albatron 7900gt, WD 200gb SATA, Samsung DVD-RW, Silverstone ST-50EF 500w PSU.

go with an antec or enermax. thermaltakes are good too. but using a no name brand psu can cause unstability that can cause lock ups and decreased hardware life.
