I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card (one suited to oblivion). I'm unable to decide between a powercolor x850xt 256 or a gainward 6800gs 512 golden sample. Also, how what specifications should my new power supply have?

thanks,
chadlebowski

I would say more 350W, the x850xt is much faster than a 6800GS.
