IMHO the psu is one of the most underrated components in the PC. If you have a solid PSU, your components will be better off (safer) and you have an easier upgrade path for other components, such as gpu's ;) I would get a bigger psu 1st no matter what, getting a 2nd 5870 for crossfire is really just icing on the cake :cheers:

Only crossfire you should go if you do is HD 5870s. HD 6850s would be a waste of money, you would be better off getting an HD 6970. Single best card you can afford is usually the best option.
