    I think it should be OK, but you are unlikely to get 100% power out of it. If you could upgrade your processor to a 3000+ or something simialr, i'm sure it would be 100% then.

    Ive got an identical setup with half the RAM and a 6800 and I get 9004 3Dmark's(03), not too shabby. As for a power supply I would get something with 400+ watts from a good brand(enermax, antec).
