My System Specs

Default

I am surprised it had enough power with only 1 6 pin attached :P

But yes, if it did not have enough pwoer, it wouldnt have powered on, there is sensors in the card for that reason, not enough power, it will try, but usually results in shut down.

BTW most cards, not sure about your 5850, now have little leds on them to show if there is a problem with them, the little sequence of lights will tell you on boot if there is a specific problem with the card, my 4870 as an example, had specific sequence to tell if there was not enough power feeding to the card, among other things :)
