I am going to build a computer with these components:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz
EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX+
7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
DVD-RW drive

Also, I will be overclocking.

the wishlist on newegg can be viewed here:

As for the case and the mobo, I haven't totally decided. I'll probably change the case, and probably not the mobo. Anyway, I'm not sure about what psu to get for this. The newegg power supply calculator tells me I should get a 585W psu, but after reading some posts here it seems to me as if that's high. So what psu should I get?

I went with the Earthwatts 650 as you suggested. Also, I'm going to get a different motherboard because I'm not planning on SLI. Thank you for your help!
