I'm getting ready to put everything in place but I was going to use my old psu from my other unit because is only a yr, old and is a good unit
it's a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 630 watt check link.


should i use this one get a lesser one for olfer unit because I went overkill or what is a good unit that is equal to or better.


2. I have a Rosewill DESTROYER http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... link will give you the specs but I want to add fans which it came with 3 and can add up to 5 more. Where would be the best place to add and flow which way. Should I get a fan control switch.

Try your old power supply and case fans first. Spend your money instead on a premium cpu heatsink. Your current fans may be adequate; adding more may not do anything but increase the noise level.

With up to 60amps of +12v power that PSU is more than you need for your parts.
It's possible it might even be able to handle a 2nd HD 5850.

No extra fans or fan controller needed. Nothing you're running is an especially 'hot' part.
Let the operating temps be your guide to when you need to think about extra cooling.
