Yea the 670 only requires a 550w PSU. Should be fine long as you don't push anything too high.

You can stuff an SSD anywhere so no worries there. If you want the extra assurance then just grab a 2.5 to 3.5 SSD adapter.

You mean for overclocking-wise? Because i plan on overclocking my CPU if i can ever get the hang of those voltages without screwing anything x_x

There probably is some of those adapters on ncix i bet.

They carry them on Newegg too.

Yea, the GPU doesn't need to be overclocked at all. Your CPU will run too hot before really pulling too much for your PSU. Like I said though, make sure you have sufficient cooling before trying to OC.

Alright then, well i decided to get the Gigabyte 670 OC and the OCZ Vertex 3 SSD afterall (all on ncix.com if you were wondering).

So i think i'll just wait till i get the new gpu and ssd and see if i really need to OC after that.

I must say i am quite excited to experience an SSD for the first time!
