More about what
  1. just a heads up, if you ever want to sli, you cannot with that mobo, its only crossfire certified.
  2. You'll want something around 550w. If you pay your own power bill you might want to check out a platinum level power supply like my sig says, they save you a large amount of money and pay themselves back within 3-4 years if you run your computer at least half the day.
  3. Well I don't know the difference lol between SLI and crossfire, But I mainly will be playing WoW and DayZ so I doubt I will need either
  4. A good quality 500 watt power supply with about 40 amps on the +12 volt rail(s) and two 6-pin PCI-e video card power cables is more than sufficient for your system.

    I maintain a list of recommended power supplies. The recommendations are based on web sites that have the proper equipment and people to conduct rigorous testing and in-depth analysis of components. Here is the link:
