Hello, I plan to buy this pc within 1-2 weeks and I need some last minute advice.

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (Already purchased)
PCU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
SSD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

lastly, I picked out two PSU's and I am not sure which is better.
PC power and cooling mkIII 500w

Antec Earthwatts 750w

I am leaning towards the earthwatts beacouse its a pretty good deal for 750w's.

I'd say the Antec one was better, though 750W is seriously overkill!

I like the pc power and cooling because its a modular psu, but the antec is a great deal.. . You could get by just fine on the 500 watt unit, and have great cable management too! :)  Win win

I am not sure, can the motherboard I picked out fit the 6870?
