    id look at a seasonic X650 PSU or Antec TruePower new 650

    Also look at a HD6870. since you getting and amd set up it only makes sense to get a amd GPU so you can Crossfire later

    ati/amd also have 3d, but 3d is bullshit,if you wanna do 3d gaming get atleas a gx470 or better because you will never have enough fire power or amd 69**serie for gaming

    uhh yeah but its not a very goood idea. they would have to be both be ati cards and in the same series. like 6 series and 6 series

    I would just screw the whole 3d and just do one 6870 and game it up 2d

    no. and multi gpu setups with nvidia cards is called SLI. you need a Intel setup to be able to.
