Question System Power Requirements for Radeon 5870

I have been reading the reviews on the new ATi 5870 and am curious as to weather I need to upgrade my power supply - See Sig - when I ugrade my graphics card with the current system I am running. I don't overclock and the AMD site 5870 recommendations state 500 watt or greater with 2 x 75 watt 6 pin PCI Express power connectors ATI Radeon? HD 5870 System Requirements The Enermax came with the 2 PCI 6 pin power connectors. Will my system be ok? I am planning a platform upgrade a little later on, with a better power supply. I am curious to try the new card with the existing system to see how it performs. I will also upgrade my ram to 4 Gb. Any responses would be appreciated. Thanks.

If you've got 2 6-pin PCI-E connectors, you'll be ok.
