I'd go with more watts on the PSU, and stick to reputable brand names...last thing you want is a crappy PSU f*ing up your components.

Plus, when you add more pci devices, fans, etc...you will need the extra juice.

Yep...good Canadian online retailer, plus they have customer reviews/questions that you can read on each product. The prices arre a little higher than a few other CND online stores, but over-all that's a good company.
