Default The Right power supply

Does anyone know the amount of watts that a person should have for their computer if they are running liquid cooling, 5 fans, 8800GTS Graphics Card, 2 10,000Rpm Harddrives (150gb).

Depends on the rest of the system and whether or not youll be doing massive overclocking. BUT, a good quiality, minimum of 600 watts should be MORE than enough.

Might I suggest either the Corsair 620HX or the PC power and cooling 610 Watt Continious. Course those are not your only options but they are near perfect fits.

See the power supply guide linked in signature.

Im running the PC Power and cooling.

With all of that I suggest something that is not modular and this could go anywere with one large 12 volt amp ot multiple 12 volt amps.
