  1. You probably don't need a 1000W PSU unless you plan to Crossfire later. Sapphire and Gigabyte make good cards with good cooling solutions.

    Though, I would keep that power supply and GPU as a spare or give them to a good friend, because Be Quiet! makes some darn good power supplies. I hate to see good power supplies go to waste.
  2. the plan is actually to have a crossfired computer .
    will this be ideal ? with my current motherboard and cpu?

    yeah i wont be throwing does stuff away anyway.
  3. You could probably Crossfire on an 800+ watts if you would like. Seems fine to me.
