Oh ok. This rig should be able to get some nice FPS at very high res on COD4, FarCry 2, Crysis, etc.

do you plan on OC'ing? If not get the PC Power & Cooling 750W. 60A should be more than enough.

I had not planned on it before...but now that we've been talking about it I kind of want to so I can improve performace. Still not sure if it's going to be necessary though...

If you plan on OC'ing and later adding on a second HD4870X2, I would get something with more amps. I think that for now that should be enough.

If you don't count the mail in rebate, the Antec is only $10 more. You're getting a lot more power for only $10 more there, and it's a rock solid PSU.

jonnyguru, pretty much the #1 PSU reviewer, gave it a 9.5/10 and recommended it. Read the review here:

I must have missed it. This is a very active thread. The Antec looks nice too. Go with it.
