I5-3570K

And by the way how many watts in my power supply do i need to run this kind of set up?

For some reason the links aren't working for me, but going by the title I don't think it really matters which one you go with if they're the same card, just choose the cheaper one or the card with the better warranty. For a single 7970, I'd say a 650 to 750W PSU would be great. Go with something like a Corsair AX750 or the new 760i, or something by Seasonic like their Platinum series. They're expensive, but you don't want to skimp on a PSU.
