Ultra X-Finity 600-Watt ATX Dual 80mm Fan SATA-Ready SLI Ready Black Power Supply w16x CD-ROM ULT31848 at TigerDirect.com

38 amps on the rails should be enough to handle Quad-Core a GTX and a couple other little things.

EDIT: Your going to need better than an arctic freezer Pro 7 to handle the heat of a quad-core...those things run HOT at stock let alone when trying to overclock.

So is it safe to say if he went with the E6850 and wanted to heavily OC it he could do it with the arctic freezer pro 7?

As long as it runs very similar in heat to the other C2D which I don't why it woudn't being only Dual-Core....The Arctic Freezer Pro 7 is good enough to handle a Vcore up to around 1.5 and keep it under the recommended (new Recommended by Intel) 65 degrees.
