Many thanks for the reply!

Exact same PSU I have is this: - Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W Continuous Power ATX12V Ver.2.2 / EPS12V version 2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" Power Supply It's served me well for the last two years so far with no issues.

The prices on those cards are very very nice, but the deals will be over by the time I order in the CPU/Mobo/RAM/?videocard next month, kinda just want to do it in one go considering I will have to strip everything out anyway. Buddy of mine works at NCIX and gets discounts ranging from 10-50% depending on the item, so I've been trying to get everything from there. This thread has definitely opened my mind on video card choices; GTX 460, GTX 470, 6870 and even the 6850 all look very nice. But as learning of the XFX double lifetime warranty, I may lean to the 6870 for $270 on NCIX, or even an EVGA GTX 460.
