Angry PSU Calculator? or MIScalculator?!

Heck, I'm not gonna humiliate myself by telling you what I'm running with my 200 watt psu.. but I'm working on getting a decent setup for myself (the leet pc in the house ain't really 100% mine) But anyway, the point about mentioning the 200 watt psu is that I've been running it for 6 years now and since then I've added a second hard drive, a 9600XT and a stick o' ram as well.. and the stabability, absolutely fine! So I'm building up my new pc. I'm planning to initially get an Opty 165 with an AsRock AGP/PCIE combo (so I can temporarily use the 9600 until I get my 1900xt) When I get all my extras in the end, my new system will be...

An overclock Opty 165 @ 2.6Ghz with the same 1.35v Vcore
2 Sticks of Samsung 512MB PC3200 RAM
1 Radeon 1900xt
1 AsRock AGP/PCIE mobo
4 case fans (probably)
1 Hard drive
1 Optical drive
1 USB device and 1 PCI card

and what kind of PSU do I need for this humble system might you ask? according to this calculator?

800 friggin WATTS

So yeah, the **** with that, don't tell me I filled the thing out wrong, I'm sure I did it right.

Whatever, for that kind of system, not really sure what kinda PSU I'll need, any reccomendations?
