And this i3 will use a ton less power--and the Antec 450w I have is rated at 24(maybe 25) amps on the +12v rail
And actually I built a system with an 8800GTS G80 and an AMD X2 on a SeaSonic 330 (maybe 380w) PSU. Works totally fine--PSU doesn't even get warm

About a month ago I had a 5750 for sale, would have gone nicely with this build.
Indeed, a newer card would have been nice. But I wasn't planning this build that long ago--and the G92 8800GTS is just fine I think.
