Can't seem to quite get a fix on which PSU would go well with my system. It'll be stacked to the top, so less than a 500W won't do, preferably more. The system will have 6 HD's, 2 DVD -/+ R/RW's and sport some minor lighting effects. The MB will be an MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum.

Go nuts, imagine price is no object. All recommendations welcome.

I like em both, but I see only 4 SATA connections, will that suffice for 6 SATA HD's ?

I think you'll have trouble finding a PSU with 6 built-in, but you can get molex to sata adapters, and some mobos come with them, so that won't be a problem.

I'm not sure if there are any PSUs out there with more than 4 SATA power connectors. Your best bet is to buy a couple Molex->SATA converters. Found some on <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681..." target="_new">newegg</A>.
