Yep you could get by with a very solid 500 watter on that setup, although i think currently your power supply is perfectly matched to what you have with enough room to add some smaller devices in the future.

That is assuming You are just running 2 x 7200 rpm hard drive?

Also are the 120 mm super high wattage or not? You could be pushing a lot more watts if your running high speed 120s and like 8 x raptors though.

a 5850 uses about 2x the power of a 7870 and runs about 20+degrees hotter, those 5800's good High performance cards but man are they energy hogs I'm running a 5870 myself.
