More than enough. The 850watt Seasonic that Ste gave you would be an excellent choice.

Loose the velociraptor. You have a ssd for os and programs. Get this drive for your data if you want fast:
Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drives -Bare Drive
or to save a bit of energy,
Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EADS 1TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

yea was looking at that earlier, sounds good that brings this system down another Benjamin 1892.89-2033.88

How about the gpu, you think getting the 4850x2 is worth it? or just get a dual card setup which will probably be more stable and run much cooler

other cards

SAPPHIRE 100282SR Radeon HD 5850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity

XFX HD-587A-ZNF9 Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity

SAPPHIRE 100281SR Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video

i guess my last post didnt go through but as far as shipping via neweggs free service i was wondering about the quality of shipping the entire order together vs shipping smaller orders. I read somewhere there is a higher risk of collateral damage when you order everything at once...

It did go through, but your not supposed to double post so I merged them.

Please do not multi post, wait for someone else to reply before posting again.
