Lawl.

Not a chance you'd need that much, a good 650 - 750w would be fine, get a Corsair.

if you are going to do crossfire you have to have at least 1000. it shows that under the requirements for doing crossfire

O rly.

Link? For lower powered cards like that, unless it was a typo and he meant 5870 in which case plump for a 1kw just to be on the safe side.

Go nVidia for the graphics card. That has nothing to do with your question, but whatever.

EDIT: Can't lie though, that's a sick build. Mine is a Fallout 3 on max system, but yours is wow.
