What brand power supply is it? They are not all created equal, regardless if they are are 80 Plus or not.

Delta should do what it's rated for. Worst that'll happen is it'll be unstable. If the screen blanks out or you recieve the error "Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered" you may need a more powerful unit. Are you going to run the HD5850 -and- the FX580 together? If they're both under heavy load as well as your q9550, you might be short on power.

You shouldn't have any issues running your current configuration with a single 5850. You will be adding 120w more load to the 12v rail but Delta has rated it at 414w. You'll be fine.

If you haven't tried this, check it out. http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

It should get you in the ballpark of what your system requires. To get -exact- power consumption, you'll have to research each component's manufacturer specifications and add it up.

With quadro:
Recomended (90% load 10% aging) - 285w
Recomended (100% load 20% aging) - 335w

With 5850:
Recomended (90% load 10% aging) - 366w
Recomended (100% load 20% aging) - 433w

Aging is used in calculations because as the filter capacitors age, they degrade in performance. This causes ripple in the DC voltages which leads to stability issues.

HD7850 = 130~150w (Less then the HD5850). HD7850 performance is about 10~20% faster then the HD5850.

That PSU seems to only have 15A on the +12V rail, I am going to doubt it holding that card especially in full load gaming

His PSU has multiple 12v outputs.

12vCPU: 15a
12vD: 12a
12vB: 17.5a

12v total: 414w max (34.5a)

If he goes with a 7850 it's 130w (10.83a). 12vB is likely the PCIe power so he's fine. He may need some adaptors depending on the graphics card but I believe the ref. 7850 has a single 6-pin.

delta makes awesome power supplies. i used to run off my athlon 3500+, the HD 4650, motherboard ram, hDDs off a 250W delta.

the best part is that power supply is still alive.
