Default Purchasing PSU / Case Fans Help.

I'm looking for recommendations on a PSU that is SLI certified listed on Nvidia's site and that has good modular cable support.
I'll be running an opteron 165 on an Asus a8n32 sli deluxe mobo with a evga 7900gt ko gpu. I might get a second gpu in the future so I'm looking for a powerful enough psu.

Also I'm looking for the best/quietest 120mm case fans. Someone mentioned to me ball bearing fans last longer then sleeve bearing fans, any advice would be great!

Thanks,
Mike

I'm from USA, I'm thinking about purchasing Enermax Liberty
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817194003

because it supports SLI and has active PFC with modular cable support. What do you think?

and i'm still looking for fan advice

thanks,
mike

if you gotta have a modular thats the best for the price , personally i'd go with ocz powerstream 520w it costs same after rebate, its not modular but at least the cables are sleeved , and its 10A stronger on the +5v, ocz psus are better quality+have 5yr warranty (enermax have 3yr)

as for the fans http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811999346
