Do you think my hec 585 PSU would be enough when i switch video cards or is it a problem waiting to happen? ty

It looks like it has 39W on the 12V rails combined, it'll run. BUt you'd might consider a Corsair PSU.

I think he meant 39A (amps).

If what he states is true, then it should work since a stock speed HD 4870 consumes about 135w or 11.3A under load.
