would crossfire of 5870s be bottlenecked by that bored?
I can get one for free perhaps.

Current bored is a m4a78 pro
You'd lose a little bit of performance since it's x8/x8, but it will be quite small, 5-10% at the most. It's definitely better than your M4A78.

Do you trust molex to 6pin pci express for powering cards? Also what watt / amp would you recomend?

As long as it's two molex to one 6pin PCI-E, I don't see a problem. I'd suggest around 70A on a single or dual rail solution. Amps denotes wattage, so ~750w? Each company labels their stuff differently.

Well, I'm a strong believer of over-engineering. If it's worth doing - It's worth over-doing.

You could get away with 650w on (you're AM3 right?) your setup running 5870CF. You might not have much room for overclocking and you could end up stressing your PSU. Which is in-turn shortening the life of the PSU.

Waiting for my RAM to arrive. I desperately need this upgrade. My desktop is choking itself with only 3 GB.
