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

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
