My System Specs

Recently my PSU fried, which fried my Vid Card, so I'm upgrading to a x1950 pro agp, and am wondering if the Enermax Liberty 500 Watt will suffice to run this system:

P4 3.2c
Asus P4C800E-Deluxe
1 gig OCZ Gold - PC800
x1950 pro agp 512
2x Raptor 74 gig - Raid 0+1
Audigy Platinum External
Plextor CD-Burner
LG DvD-reader
3 - 80 mm sys fans
1 - 120 mm sys fan

With the 32 amps total from both rails, I "think" it will, but I'm not certain if that's going to be the case, as I know the Vid card alone wants 30 amps sustained (not positive if this PSU is going to be a sustained 32 amps).

I would just go with the 620 version and not worry about it, if it wasn't 30 bucks more expensive atm, and if I wasn't going to be out of work in January (which I am now, so this is a bit of a blow to the pocket book).

Any help would be appreciated.

It's confusing the way they rate the required amperage on the 1950pro. What you need is minimum 30 - 36 amps on a single rail for the entire system.

The card itself draws no more than 15 - 18 amps under full load.
