    Of the 3 you've chosen, The AXP 630w is the best. Not just because of the higher wattage, but it has two 6 pin PCIe connectors (which the 4870 NEEDS!!) and better amps on the +12v rail. With either of the other two your system probably won't turn on or the 4870 would stay in low power mode until it detected a second 6 pin PCIe connector.

    I've never heard of AXP, so if there are any other power supplies by better brands (I recommend Antec, Corsair, OCZ, PC Power and Cooling or Seasonic) in the same price range, I would look into those. Remember, for your system you will need two 6 pin PCIe connectors!

    mm.. nice PSU
    (thanks for finding it in the greek site It could a bit difficult to understand the language)

    But is 425 watt enough to make my system work? Are there any opportunities to OC the CPU and GFX?

    425W is plenty, don't worry about it. I bet it outperforms the AXP one in real life as well, since Enermax is pure PSU porn, really. Your system will draw maybe 200-250W from the wall in the end, so you'll have a nice headroom for some OC.

    This depends on largely what you use your system for? It is for gaming mainly or just work?
