im a little uninitiated into the needs of power supplies as ive stated before, im in the process of shopping for a new case/PSU, sorry to post off topic in here but this has become a general sort of forum ground. im looking at the mge viper with 500W should that be good enough?

lol don't know, need to check out it's rails and refer to this guide:

it's kind of old, but gives you an idea how much power each device takes, and how to figure out how big of rails you should look for.

hold it, umm, i believe you can use an external hdd instead of an internal. my bios has the option to make an external hdd the first boot option, in the manual it also says i can boot the os from the external.
