500 Watt or greater power supply with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended (600 Watt and four 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)

Look for a 600W+ PSU by Antec, Corsair, OCZ or if you got the money, Seasonic, PCP&C (bought out by OCZ).

650W should be enough, but to be safe, go with a 750W. Stick with a major brand (Corsair, OCZ, Antec Earthwatts). I prefer Corsair, as I think they're the highest quailty, but you do pay a slight premium.

Um If you want to have 2 5870's, i assume that's what you meant by

" Asus 5870 ( 2 X Next Year ) "

then the CMPSU 650tx doesn't have enough 6 pin connectors. Only has 2 and each 5870 needs 2.

Get the 750TX instead.

:)  Phew, Thanks alot!!
