Here's the rig I'm thinking:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3
GFX: SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 5870 1GB
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Here's the question: Will this (CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W) PSU work in this AMD based system? It says compatible with i7 both in the title and the specs. No mention of AMD. Also, is this enough power? I want to crossfire too eventually.

Thanks for your time,

Yes to both your questions... It will work for an AMD build and is powerful enough for your system and a second 5870, if need be.

It'll work just fine. The fact that it states i7 compatible is just the company boasting and advertising the intel product. Its compatible with both amd and intel, same as every psu.

You don't need 8gb of ram for games and normal use.
Otherwise, looks fine.
