Can anione tell me whats the power needed if i want to power a 6800GT

Also what i have is a 2.66ghz P4 FSB 533
1 GB ram
Audigy 2 ZS
GeForce FX 5600

as you can see i am only missing out on a good graphics card. So tell me if i replace my graphics now with a 6800GT btw i use AGP will my computer with it current specs be able to get the most out of the card? because if not i'll stick to a 6600 GT

it will use slightly more then the top end cards of old, i believe my fx5950u sucks about 50 watts, id expect a 6800gt to be nearer 60, i know that a 6800ultra will drain your PSU dry if its low rated.
