just look for a psu with good amperage. and always keep your psu cool and ventilated because they don't work well when hot.

So the antec smartpower i reference above should be alright then? It has modular connections, will it be enough connections for the hardware i mentioned? I will eventually fill the tower w/ harddrives i would imagine...

I jujst bought a HIS X1900XTX IceQ3 512mb card and figured why take a chance on skimping on a PSU. I pickup the
PC P&C Turbo-Cool 510 SLI:. My card cost almost as much as all the rest of the components put together. Whatever size you get make sure it a QUALITY PSU from the recommended list of manufactures.

Well....that card and my PSU are my ONLY nice choices. Its part of my first build and I have made some real stupied choices in trying to save money. Example:

1. Cause of a huge rebate (and not doing my homework) I purchased a mobo/cpu bundle that consist of Gigabyte K8ne socket 754 mobo with a AMD Athlon 64 +3400 2.4Ghz cpu.
A) No upgrading
B) No duel channel ram

And thats just the beginning but one learns from one's mistakes.
