ok a few questions. Do you plan on getting anymore hard drives or a second video card?, for the currect Setup, a Corsair TX 650 will do nicely. and http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...

Check out the modular version if cable management is also a concern.

For a system using a single Radeon HD 6870 graphics card AMD specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply. The power supply should also have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 30 Amps or greater and have at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Continuous Amperage Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most important.

If you're planning on overclocking the CPU then add at least another 6 Amps to the +12 Volt continuous current rating.

The Antec High Current Gamer Series 520W (HCG-520), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 40 Amps and with two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is sufficient to power your system configuration with a single Radeon HD 6870.

The Antec HCG M Series 520W semi-modular (HCG-520M), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 40 Amps and with two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is sufficient to power your system configuration with a single Radeon HD 6870.

The OCZ ZS Series 550W (OCZ-ZS550W), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 38 Amps and with one 6-pin and one (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is sufficient to power your system configuration with a single Radeon HD 6870.

The OCZ ZT Series 550W (OCZ-ZT550W), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 45 Amps and with two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is more than sufficient to power your system configuration with a single Radeon HD 6870.
