Ok well looking over power supplies I have decided to go to one of these. I wanted something at 500w or over and that did not break the bank, more than $150.

Antec 480 watt 120mm fan ATX 12V v2.0 power supply, "NeoPower"

Fortron Blue Storm 500W ATX12V V2.0 Power Supply "AX500-A”

Enermax EG701AX-VE(W)

ENERMAX Whisper II 2.0 SLI 535W Power supply 'EG565P-VE FMA2.0 SLI'

Zippy PSM-6600P

PC Power and Cooling 510 SLI

After looking at this site (http://www.extreme.outervision.com/index.jsp ) to see what my power needs would be I came up to 490w with all intentions of equipment I could think of getting over the next few months.
Bringing myself to pay more than $150 for the Enermax kind of hurts, and the Fortron looks great for the price, the Antec I think just will not cut it the rest well...?

My RiG:
A8N-SLI Deluxe ver. 1006
AMD 64 3000+ (Will be overclocked!)
Dual WD 120Gig 7200 Drives (will be moving to a Raptor SATA)
NVIDIA 6600 GT OC (will be going dual!)
2 Sticks of XMS Corsair CMX512 C2 PT PC3200
CDR Sony
NEC DVD R/W +/-
ViewSonic VX910
And about 8 USB connections.

The Fortron should be good for around 70W more than the Antec. The Antec "480" watt should go just under 500W, while the Fortron 500W should go just over 550W. Both companies leave extra room, Fortron just leaves a bit more.
