I don't know if you need the 480 watt...you're the one putting the computer together here. Those are some fine resources to find out how much wattage you need....and a higher wattage PSU doesn't mean it's going to be noisy...they are all virtually noiseless these days....You can buy one from thermaltake that doesn't have any fans on it...just bigass heatsinks sticking out the sides, but yeah the ones I directed you to are quiet...like I said I got the 560 so don't be so bent up about the noise of a PSU by, especially by thermaltake.

I've never even heard speeze cpu fan and heatsink...if you want a good heatsink you get solid copper...not one with a copper core. Basically that thing you linked to looked like crap especially if you said you want to spend a good amount on a good CPU fan for good temps.

that will be a pretty good heatsink and it supposed to come factory lapped to a damn near mirror finish. it DOES NOT however come with a fan..so you'd have to buy your own and it only supports 80mm so I'd suggest getting a vantec 80mm tornado with that..those are LOUD however.

That is also supposed to be damn near top of the line heatsinkage...again with no fan but can adapt up to 92mm so you could put on a 92mm tornado for some major air pushage...but again it'd be loud as hell......I haven't seen a comparison against the two heatsinks but personally I'd go with thermalright.
