Default Watercooled PC

If i will be running a DC pump (not sure on which one), a couple of uv cold cathodes, two 120mm fans on the rad, 6800gs (very clever newegg for removing the evga 7800gt for 280 or something), 2 74gb raptors, asus a8n32, x-fi musicxtreme and possibly some more fans in the case, what wattage of a PSU should i try to be looking at? If this changes anything, I will be overclocking

and just for clarification, if a 550W PSU is modular, it wont be worse than the same 550W PSU nonmodular
