Official TDP on a 5670 is 61 watts. 200 watts is the "estimated" total system draw. Even with an overclocked Q6600, total system draw will still be around the 300 watt mark with everything cranked (crossfired 5670s).
Seventeam tends to make good units.
As far a CPU bottlenecks, as long as they are clocked properly, it shouldn't be too much of a problem. Q6600s I think were available in a B3 and a G0 stepping, G0 clocked a lot better, and ran cooler. Something to look for. A Q6600 at 3.0 to 3.2 is still a happy setup. Some of the modern games are CPU crushers, but as far as bottlenecking a pair of 5670s, not likely.
For grins I hooked up the kill a watt to my E6750 (3.0ghz)/5670/550VX HTPC this morning. Total draw loaded.......195 watts at the wall.
