Change your PSU to PC Power&Cooling 910w Silencer or Corsair HX1000w. Also switch your memory to OCZ Platinum 1600.... It is cheaper and better timings....

you are missing a quality power supply

A 750 or 850 watt corsair or similar

Thats an awesome build .

can I borrow it?

Keep the 4870x2, they are dirt cheap right now. ( Kinda lol )
Unless you crossfire the 4890 and then it will cost a lil more than a single 4870x2 and perform better.

Some stuff you will need for your build.

1) 1ST PC CORP. 12" 8-pin EPS extension cable $7.99 (needed when PSU is located at bottom of case)

2) An aftermarket CPU HSF Cooler, if you are planning to OC. I would suggest tis one below.

3) Thermal Compound

4) Would look @ the Corsair 850HX modular PSU, which has 7yr warranty and is great for cable management.
