I would get a bigger PSU, just in case you ever decide to upgrade. I suggest something between 650-750.

Yeah when i decide down the line to crossfire or upgrade the CPU that's the first thing to upgrade but i got a smokin deal on the 550 and with the calculater I used it seems like it shoul handle my rig even oc'd right now.

However I waffled on that choice for a while....

Are you planning to dual/triple screen when you crossfire? (This might sound like a stupid question >_>)

Eh...should have gotten something else. Not a quality unit. Don't cheap out on PSU, man. It's a component that can take others with it to the grave and can be used for multiple builds.

I would NOT call tht a stupid question! And my answer for now is no. I am mostly using this unit attached to my tv for a monitor and plan to stream content throughout the house. Dow the line however dual/triple screens is an option, depending in my wife's needs as she is starting a business and may have good use for it.

Yeah I waffled big on this one but the reviews seemed positive. Hopefully I don't eat those words....
