not looking at anything in particular - been told two were good by other people and then in forums been told that neither of them is sufficent for this system - I guess I just want to know what I need to sufficently power this system. I mentioned those brands specifically just because someone else had - but I wasnt sure which ones to be looking at for this. I'm open to any brands and recommendations as long as they are good quality psu's that will be good for this computer.

yeah i was already thinking that - i was gonna put two 80mm. thanks for the psu links - i'm gonna go with the antec i think.
Besides the major components that I have fairly nailed down, what else do I need for the build (fans, heat dispersement, cooling, cables, tools, other misc.)? Wanna make sure I have everything I need. Also any suggestions on blue lcd fans, blue lights, and blue cables? thanks.

Also the speakers are kinda weak. 70W total? What is that? Try 70W per speaker with the Logitech Z-5500 505W 5.1 Speakers It's a little more pricey, but it will be worth it.
