From the Power Supply Calculator I got that I'd need 1090 watts

I will be overclocking my cpu and will have a controller connected to my computer very often. Once I get a little more money I'll get another 4870 and crossfire them. Is a 1200 watt psu really needed? Also, will that cooler be functional?

  1. not a chance, a quality 750 watt will handle 2 cards fine if you still not comfy get an 850watt instead thats one of the best coolers it will work fine just get the 1366 version
  2. I knew that much power wasn't needed. I'll go with a 850:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139009
