Got two setups here. Which one would work better for a primarily gaming machine. The 2nd one doesn't have all the components listed but should give a good idea. Thanks!

Depends. If you are planning to add a second 5870 (would need to upgrade the PSU) then the X58 build is better.

If you are just sticking to the one 5870, the P7P55D Deluxe board is probably nicer. The CPUs pretty much tie in most benches.

What sized PSU should I go with if I think I might add another 5870? I don't intend to in the beginning unless the 5870 isn't great by itself.
