Just decided i'm going to a local computer store instead of ordering online. One not to far from me, but anyway they have a vareity of stores in the area just in case there isn't a part in stock. Yet they don't have two of my GPU options that I had in mind.

The ATi Radeon HD 4870

& the

Asus ATi Radeon HD 4870x2 <- Was hoping to get this bad boy.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

So it seems like I will be ordering the new Sapphire Vapour-X 5870 HD.Back then I didn't know the wattage rates for certain gc's until Twist recommended me to look at this

Yet now since im stuck with the 5xxx series card I was wondering what kind of psu i'll need in order to adjust the stability level to excellent.

Here a site of the local store's website

BTW, is the 4870 HD GC gaining a better rare level as the days go on or something ? I don't see it in the site at all and this is one of the top store's in Canada.

The seems like the right section to me. The HD5870 over the HD4870x2 was definitely a good call. The HD5870 actually uses slightly less power than the HD4870 your sig says you have now so don't worry about it.
