Phenom II - 6870 build

I am planning a build with an Phenom II X4 965 BE and a 6870 card.
2 questions :
will there be a cpu bottlenck issue since the 6870 is a really powerfull card?
will a Chieftec A-135 Series PSU 500W handle the 6870 and perhaps some OC to the CPU and the vga?

thanks.

  3. Can someone suggest a cheap PSU that in the future can lift the 6870 in crossfire?
    i am interested in these 3 brands specifically : chieftec, corsair and coolermaster.
    What is the minimum watt power for 6870 in crossfire?

    That's a question to ask in the PSU forum.
