Also, I ran it through this website and it recommended at least a 455w PSU but i don't know if I should trust that because the HD 6850 wasn't in there so I put a 5970.

So, would this power supply have MORE THAN enough power to power all of those parts because I want to make sure I have enough power at all times.

I would go for at least 600W taking into consideration future additions to the parts you have chosen here, possible overclocking etc. Although that psu may be baseline for what you've gotten, any other thoughts?

So I should go with a 600w if i'm going to be overclocking and buying a new graphics card etc. in the future?
