Check my recommended PC components thread in my sig, like Trotter mentioned, for the PSU.

I love it. I own one too. And it never disappointed me. Should power your specs, no problem. What graphic card are you using?

8600GT with a quad core? Anyway, that FSP Group SAGA will do the job just fine.

But if you are going to do major upgrades in the next few months, I would suggest going a little higher. Around the 500-550W region, with 35-40 amps on the +12v rails. The Corsair 550VX is an awesome pick, if your budget is up for it.

Then again, with future components consuming less power, you probably won't be needing anymore than that FSP 400W....has plenty of amps.
