    More than enough.

    In fact it would be more than enough for a pair of 5850s.

    Re: power supply enough

    I can say it will definitely be enough, even if you were to overclock both the processor and graphics card.

    It would only be a waste of money to get the Corsair 650W.

    Re: power supply enough

    Hexus tested a Scan prebuild today with heavily overclocked GTX480 and i7 920, that was running happily on a 650W PSU. Given how comparatively energy efficient the 5850 is compared to the GTX480 (and to a lesser extent the Phenom II + 890 chipset combination is compared to i7 + X58) you should be more than fine with a 620W for your planned build

    Re: power supply enough

    I found a very handy PSU calculator online. If you google Power Supply Calculator it should come out top. Calculates the mimimum and reccomended PSU for you.
