Default Graphics Card with PSU

This PSU:
This Graphics Card:
This Motherboard:

Is everything good with that setup? I'm really worried about the PSU. I don't want to get this awesome graphics card without knowing if the PSU will be able to power it. IF you have a better PSU choice please tell me. Hopefully under $200 for the PSU. I really want the PSU to last me a couple years.

Hey TehBestEver,

Since you are looking at DFI boards, why not get the DFI Ultra-D? It can be modded to SLI. There is a guide on DFI-Street. Also, you will save some money.

If you go with the Ultra-D, then buy the OCZ Powerstream 520W. It is the best all-around PSU for all boards, according to DFI-Street's PSU guide.

The video card is great. I just purchased it yesterday. My research showed that purchasing the "Extreme" versions of the card is useless. You can OC the card to the "Extreme" settings. You just saved $70.

See my sig.
