430W on the +12V rails total draw should be more than enough. The main power draws will be from there and are you Phenom II 965 and 9800GT.

You know your monitor isn't powered by your computer's power supply, right?

When you say thoughts or ideas are you referring to thoughts or ideas on your build also? If so, I need:
1. Computer uses. If games, which games?
2. which parts are new and which ones do you already have?

Thx for your reply enzo. When i stated any thoughts, i meant what anyone reading thought about using this much power supply would be OK or not. I already have bought this stuff for 400+ dollars and don't want to put any more money in to it.
Any other suggestion guys? thanks again!
