Mine runs off 1 PCI power lead if that's what you mean? although mine is Sapphire brand and smaller I believe

well it looks like the old batch had only one PCI power but new batch has 2 of them...

Same pirce at amazon link

I think it's because it's for the cooler, but any old molexs you have will do the job just fine as it comes with 2 adapters.
Also on these pics they have 2

My first one (got it December 2010) had 1 PCI-E Power connector.
My second one (RMA from May 2011) had 2 PCI-E Power connectors.
So these will almost certainly have 2.

Waiting for the 7850 or 7870 but this is an amazing price for this card. Would definitely rather buy from Amazon but hey.

I have a 460w psu would it be sufficient? There are 3 hard drives and 1 dvd writer.

Will this be a good upgrade from my 5770.

i got this card but Sapphire make for £150 2 years ago, it's pretty good, this was only card in the price range at the time to allow 3 monitors connected at once and with eyefinity.

will struggle to run at full power or oc. you need at least 500w - 600w i'll say.

Bear in mind this card is 24cm long!

I don't think I'd be able to run this on a 375w PSU. What would be the best value card I would be able to run?

Looks like a useful increase to me..I've just ordered one to replace my 5750

and now it did hit me. need new PSU omg

Good price. Will make a nice upgrade for many systems.
My card (5850) is only marginally better and it continues to surprise, impress and delight.

Upgrade the PSU, might do a 6770 at a push, but I wouldn't risk it.

Is probably the best you can do at this price point.

Great price. Heat added!

Anyone know if this will be bottlenecked by a 2Ghz dual core system too much?

I have one of these running fine on a branded 380w psu if that helps

How does this compare to a GTX 560TI?

Ran my 6850 in a Dell with a 300w PSU without a proboem

Currently have a nvidia GeForce gtx 260, would this be a worth while upgrade or should I stretch the budget a bit more? Thanks in advance.

I have a 260 gtx too, I'm thinking of waiting for the 78XX though.

Also 560Ti rapes the 6850 (without overclocking)

Probably best card in terms of price/performance. Voted hot.

I do hope those mentioning that they're waiting for the 7800 cards do realise that the 7850 will be at least double this price! This card is great bang for buck!

Is this a lot better than a geforce gts 250? or would it only be a slight improvement?
In no rush to upgrade so unless it was a major difference I am not going to.

My card runs things fine, but it's noisey as hell!

What's the noise levels like on these? Are there any quiet/silent mid/high end graphics cards at the moment?

should be quiet , well mine is

Very tempted by this as an upgrade for my 5770, just don't really NEED to upgrade at the mo. humph.

Time for an upgrade for my old 4800 series card. Now I just need to sneek it in to the box without Mrs S noticing and all is ok.....
