I currently have a PC Power&Cooling Silencer 470. It has a 26amp 12v rail. Will this be enough to run this card? If this 12v rail requirement question has been asked before , please forgive me. Thanks.

Majeztik12, I have a similiar set up as you. I also replaced my 7900GT KO with the HIS 3870 IceQ3 Turbo, OMG, what a difference. You will definatley enjoy it. Crysis in high settings looks great.

I'm currently running a Ultra X3 600W with my Visiontek 3870X2, you should be more than ok for a single 3870.
