well...being a 600W PSU...you're fine.....the PSU rating for the graphics card is for a total system not just for the card...i assure you that the graphics card is NOT using 400W...when a single device (like a graphics card) suggests a PSU rating...it generally is taking into account GENERAL motherboard/system consumption
