Ok then. How much Power do you think i will need. Im not doing this for a few months (Waiting for some prices to drop, Hoping for midrange DX10, Ect) But have no clue about the whole PSU thing. I guess 500w + Is good?

Wattage isn't the only thing that is important(If it's really that important at all..). Amperage and distrobution of amps matter. The 450w Fortron should be suffice, but I don't really know the amount of power the midrandge dx10 cards will need.
