New System Build

Alright, I have been thinking of this build for a while and I need to get everything together next week. I have already bought a XFX HD4870 1GB. I just basically need a "good to go" on this build and some advice.

*My budget is around $600 (21,000 Baht)

Since of where I live I dont have access to alot of hardware and good prices so you can use this site for reference:
www.thanni.com

Original Build *excluding VGA
CPU- AMD Phenom X3 720 BE (2.8 Ghz) (4,740B)

PSU- What you recommend? Budget= (4,000B)

MOBO-ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AMD 790X/SB750 (4,350B)
http://www.thanni.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=474&products_id=5433

RAM- DDR3 G.SKill 4GB (2x2GB) 7-7-7-21-2N (4,120B)

Optical Drive- Any under: (1,000B)

HDD- Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB (1,790B)

Case-Thermaltake Element T (2,240B)

Total
22,240 (just over budget by 1,240B)


*For my PSU I need to know what amount of wattage I will need to run 2 HD4870 1GBs as I plan to crossfire a little later. What can you recommend?
*Are there any bottlenecks in my build mainly on the CPU and the PCI slots at 8x when I crossfire?
*Is EVERYTHING compatible?

I really want this to go nice and clean and I really need to make sure everything is compatible and ready to go and If anyone can find me some better hardware on the site to suit my budget better.

sorry if anything is unclear, its really late =)

Thanks in advance

  1. Corsair 650w will crossfire 4870s.
    No bottlenecks.
    Yes.
  2. if you dont have alot of access to comp parts it wasnt wise to buy an out dated card, you should of bought a DX11 card
  3. +1 on single GPU set up and cut costs with this 770 mobo - an excellent budget clocker/unlocker! Maybe a HD 5850/70 down the road?

    yes , great suggestion , its the best to go with ud3p for single gpu's , it has full 16 lanes pcie2.0 for use with any card out there . no need for 790/785g etc . i am using it and am fully satisfied .
