I'd get a Corsair HX850 or HX750.

You won't hit 600W even if you overclock. I do recommend modular power supplies though. Makes things look much more neat and clean.

650w+ from antec, corsair, xfx, or seasonic

OC'd 5970 will hit 400W, and an OC'd phenom would use 150 at least.

I realize it's better to use 850 watt or higher to unleash HD 5970 power ;)

Get a minimum of a quality 650watt PSU for non-OCed 5970.

Get a minimum of a quality 750watt PSU if you plan to OC a 5970.
