Asus EAH6970 DCII PSU?

Im about to get this card:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121430&cm_re=dcii-_-14-121-430-_-Product
I've seen many great features coming from that card so i want to purchase it =p but thats not it.

I am in need of a high quality modular psu to power that. Also i will be overclocking substantially on cpu ram and graphics. which i cannot do on my current psu. (BFG 550w modular)

Current Specs:
Gigabyte GA-MA78LM-S2
XFX HD 4890 (Upgrade to 6970 DCII)
AMD Phenom II x4 940 OC - 3.4ghz (Want 3.7ghz but nbd)
4gb DDR2 ram
550w BFG Modular
2x 120mm case fans (will upgrade to 2x blue led 200mm case fans)
AOC 24' 1920x1080
HAF 912 Mid-Tower
640gb Western Digital HDD

  1. How did you arrive at the conclusion that your current power supply isn't able to handle an overclocked ASUS EAH6970 DCII/2DI4S/2GD5?

    its a 550w max power. and its fan is dying o.O and the asus 6970 requires 2 8pin pci and all i have is a 6pin and an 6pin+2pin

    antec TP 650watts, its on sale, bronze certified, modular like your BFG and has all the connections you need plus its $10 cheaper then the 550w version....

    obviously if you don't care about modular (figure you did) there are some cheaper options
