    It's a coolermaster 550W peak PSU.
    Probably one of their eXtreme power ones.
    It handles my setup nicely. Should do his too.

    Asus or Gigabyte motherboards seem to be highly rated on here

    Well I started out thinking about the ATI 5770, but the GTX 460 is better and not much more expensive. The 1GB is even more cash.
