Not saying im going too, but its a nice option to have.
For one they ain't SLI'd and I don't recommend crossfire on a 500w. The system might post, but they won't run anything.

Load Power consumption of 6850s in Crossfire runs around 370W when in Furmark. leaving 130W for everything else including CPU. No. Not quite enough. Best to have at LEAST a 550W. Preferably 600W.

It'll run. Just not anything that requires a lot of GPU usage. I still wouldnt recommend it.

If you're going crossfire, I'd go with a 750W.

A bit of headroom is good. You don't want your PSU running at near max load all the time.

And I'm sure you don't upgrade your PSU all too often, so it's best to just get a good one the first time around.

I edited it, it was 370W not 430.
I would say 600W-650W. My build in sig rig has overkill PSU. Didn't know it at the time.

your going to need the 64 bit version of windows to utilize all the memory your buying. also you dont need a new psu. is your monitor 1080p? i suggest you go for that 6870 your thinking about. your 650w will run two 6870's perfectly fine with overclocking headroom too
