tv's have low resolution compared to many monitors .

If yout tv is 1080p then a 4870 1gig or 4890 or GTx275/285

if its 720 p then a 4850 will be fine , but a 4870 better .



complete waste of time running 12 gig of ram for gaming . Have a look in the memory articles on this site

waste of money*** running 12 gb of ram.

i dont have experience with that case of yours... or whatever you wanna call it. but uhh.. i don't know how you DIDN'T find a psu for it? i mean go to newegg, look for something thats branded corsair, pc power & cooling, antec, cooler master, seasonic, and if it's about 600watts, you should be good.

Here is a link to the official 4870X2 requirements:
http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/graphics/ati-rad...
It specifies a 650watt psu with a 6 pin and an 8 pin pcie connector.
Specs from a vga vendor are conservative to account for poor quality psu's.

The key is to get the two pci-e connectors, and a unit from a quality vendor.
PC P&C, Corsair, Antec, and seasonic are good. There are others.
A Corsair 650TX would do the job nicely:

thanx for ure help...the reason i was stuck was because an antec skeleton case 'apparentely' can fit a power supply that has max fan size of 92 mm only ...thats what i was told any how...plus the graphics card needs a psu that sends a certain ammount of volts down each 'thread'...which i dont quite know what that means....i'll check ure links out and let u know what i find...thanx ...:)
