Default Power Supply Advice.

Ok i am picking out my psu today and ordering tomorrow morning. I have got in narrowed down to 2 choices.

http://www.canadacomputers.com/inde...0076&cid=PS.808

http://www.canadacomputers.com/inde...1959&cid=PS.808

I will be running a e6600, evga 680i mobo, 7900gs, 4 sata hard drives ( 2 raptures 2 caviars ) 1 120mm fan 4 80mm fans 2 gig of 800mhz ,undecided soundcard, after market heat sync OR water cooling, floppy

I know with this build not to much power is needed. But the day Crysis comes out i am putting a 8800 in their, and eventually a a second 8800. Also i have not bought my processor yet and i keep hearing rumors of quad cores dropping dramatically in price. If that happens i will be slappin a quad core in their too. Would 700 w be enough for a qc and duel 8800's plus water cooling, or will i need the 850 w for the extra 100 canadian dollars. Keep in mind i do not want to have to replace a psu anytime in the next 5 years.

You sure those would fully power a quad core 2 8800 gtx and 4 hdd ? I was reading that each 8800 uses 300w of power alone.

TriEclipes's sticky just saved me 100 bucks. I love this forum, thanx for the heads up. Now i am thinkin a 500 w psu will work if i put my 2 7200rpm hdds in external cases and use fire wire to hook them up. Really that was kind of what i wanted to do in the first place anyways.
