Centurion 531 + Which Power Supply???

I was considering buying the Centurion 531 w/ power supply included ...

but I have just read that the eVGA Geforce needs a 450 watt PSU so I am thinking of buying the case without the PSU and getting a separate one.

Here are the specs of the system that I am thinking of building

eVGA 133-K8-NF41 Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX
eVGA 256-P2-N518 Geforce 7800GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice 1GHz FSB 512KB L2 Cache Socket 939
Patriot Signature Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit

I have normal ATA hard drives and a PCI sound card (Hercules Game Theater XP) that I will be running for a while until I get around to upgrading them

What PSU would you suggest for this build? I don't plan on overclocking ...

Your system should run on any good quality 450W power supply. I'd go for 500-600W depending on how many things you might add later.

ah, save some money and get a good quality 500W, that will support two of your video cards in your system, which is probably the highest load the thing will use.
