First though, get a 6870. Same performance, lower temps, lower power consumption. As to the PSU: Seasonic S12II http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... There is no question, this is the best you'll find for this price, and more than enough power for your system Corsair http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
