im using a 430watt psu with an e6550 @ 3ghz and an 8800gt and its handling fine, so i think either psu will do.

I think that Corsair psu will be good for you, but I would provably go with the 550w version.

For cooling I would recommend the Enzotech Extreme X Cooler, if you can find it.

Some pictures of the one I'll be installing on a friend's pc soon.

Evil: Thats one nice looking cooler.

OP: dont get the rosewill they are junk of a PSU, Corsair on the other hand is solid no problems there. For cooler at around that price id go with an Arctic Freezer Pro7
