Thinking of upgrading to a 6800GT. I saw them for $299 after rebate on Newegg. I think I should have enough power for it, just wanting to make sure.

Which model Antec PSU is in that case? Is it the Antec TRUE430 ATX? If so, it would seem you should be fine with some headroom to spare. But let us know what PSU you currently have.

You should be all set. I did the math earlier and you have more than enough power (significantly) on all 3 (+3.3v, +5v, +12v) Rails to handle your current config.

How do you caculate it? I have a page bookmarked that lets you configure your system and it outputs your watts. How you calculate each rail?
