  1. Edit your post to match the form in my sig. Definitely go for an AM3/DDR3 setup. The number of watts needed to power a system depends on how efficient the PSU is - in other words, what exact PSU is it?
  2. ^+1

    Why did you get an OC 4870 anyways?
  3. Because i bought it from a friend of mine who has a crossfire setup and he didn't need it. So i got the card for only 100 dollars from him....
  4. I think this PSU: Although more expensive compared to the 600W PSU you suggested, this one will work stable.
