Just so those of us who are in the process of buying a whole computer would have a good orientation...
The actual W-rating (350, 430, 500, etc) doesn't matter as much as the fact that you want a power supply with a strong A-rating on the +12V line. For a 6800 GT, you will want a PSU with a rating of at least 18A, for a 6800 Ultra 20A would be ideal. Base your searches around that and you'll gain a much better idea of what works best with the 6800 lineup.
