My 1156 Build

It's quad fire capable so down the road i was hoping to use that feature. i thought i might need a huge psu for that? Or would a 950-1000 be sufficient?

I forget how efficient the 5870s are (or how efficient the 5970 will be) so I guess in light of this new information. Perhaps the 1250 would be a good investment for safety's sake. Though I hope it wouldn't need more than a good 1000W

find a rig running two 4870x2s and probably take off maybe 200W-300W and that should be about what you'll be pulling.
