Default ABS Tagan series?

Right now I have the Ultra X-finity 500W PSU. Looking into buying the ABS Tagan BZ800 so I can run the new 9800 GX2 in Quad SLI later down the road. Does anyone have or know aproxamately how long these cables are on this one? On my current PSU the wires are run behind the mobo tray for a cleaner look and I would hope to accomplish this with the Tagan. Any help is appreciated.

Cables look to be around the 20-24 inch range. What case do you currently own?

Ive got the thermaltake armor series VA8000BWS full tower. Im pretty sure they are long enough just wanted them long enough to keep it clean inside. Do you think that PSU is strong enough for the 9800 GX2 quad sli down the road? or should I step up to the bz900?
