More about system first
  1. You were doing OK until you got to the Raidmax PSU.

    First though, get a 6870. Same performance, lower temps, lower power consumption.

    As to the PSU:
    Seasonic S12II

    There is no question, this is the best you'll find for this price, and more than enough power for your system

    Corsair
