Default How's my PSU?

So, I was thinking of getting this for my new video card:

But does my current PSU provide enough amperage, or should I just go with an 8800gt instead?

The HD 4850 has a TDP of 110W, a tiny bit higher than the 8800GT. Your PSU will cope fine.

Really? Whew. I was really freaking out, thinking that I need to get a new beefy PSU.

Have fun with your new card!
And to think 6 months ago my 8800GT was an awesome card for the price, now we have this!!
