I've built some computers in the past but nothing so high end, and now that its shipping to my house I'm second guessing myself.

These are the specs:

AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Processor

ASUS Crosshair V Formula AM3+ AMD 990FX Mother Board

(2 of these) SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16

Kingston 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

Seagate Barracuda Green ST1000DL002 1TB 5900 RPM

OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III SSD

CORSAIR H100 (CWCH100) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Thanks so much guys, that calculator was fun to play with, not sure I entered it all in right though.

@neon Yea I was browsing this forum on power supplies looking for some help without posting, and I didn't see a soul recommend this brand..... I'll look into getting an Antec, they seem to be highly praised.

You don't really need a calculator. The page I linked you to does it for you. 2 x 6870s need a 600w power supply. If they are heavily overclocked ( and your CPU too ) make it 700 watts. Stick with the brands I listed for a quality unit.

Where are you buying from? I will be glad to see if anything good is on sale.
