New Rig need help

Okay so i've ordered my parts for the new rig. Most of them are already here.
Intel Core i7 870 2.93Ghz (Will OC to 4.0Ghz)
Gigabyte GA-P55-UD5
4GB Corsair Dominator GT 2133Mhz CAS9
NZXT M59 (Already Own)
ATI Radeon HD6870
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB
Power supply? what would be suitable for this rig?

I was wondering will this rig work well for games such as GTA IV, Medal of Honor, Battlefield Bad company 2. CPU Intensive games?

Thanks in advance

  1. It will do OK. Fine even if your monitor resolution is 1680x1050 or lower.

    Here's a high end modular PSU with enough power for any single GPU setup:

    If you are planning to crossfire in the future then something like this:

    It will much better than "OK". It will perform exceptionally.

    It will max out all of the games you listed with ease at high frames. Might have to go a little easy on the AA and what not but you barely notice that stuff anyways. High settings FTW.

    EDIT: I would also like to recommend this PSU.

  4. Either I was hallucinating your original post said "GTX 275 (already own)." Yes, the 6870 will be good.
