Everything looks good. Make sure your GPU has the standard 5 port layout of the 6870. Many people have had issues with the nonstandard layout. It will run 2 monitors. It will take a bit of work to get the 6870 to working in Mountain Lion. It's not hard just make sure you're comfortable with it. http://www.tonymacx86.com/mountain-...mountain-lion-6xxx-gpu-issues-fix-inside.html
Thanks for the answer, do you think the PSU will be enough?
Yes it has the standard layout, if it´s 1xDVI-D, 1xDVI-I, 1xHDMI and 2xMini Displayports.
What inputs will work? If possible i want the HDMI and one DVI.
Yes i know about the fix.

PSU is plenty
I believe the HDMI, both Mini DP, and 1 DVI. With that card you can have up to 4 monitors. Still kicking myself for not spending the extra money on that over the 6850, but oh well.
