I'm having a hard time figuring out what PSU Size I'll need for this build. The specs can be found in this thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/358220-31-workstation... . The case contains two 120mm fans and one 140mm fan, so in total there are six 120mm fans and one 140mm fan. Thanks in advance.

550-600W will be just fine, but I agree with what was stated in that thread too. Just get a good Geforce card. Nothing you will be doing requires a Quadro card to work well (A GTX 560/Ti will work just as well in Photoshop because of CUDA and the CPU will handle the 3D rendering).

Thanks, I just thought the quadro was a good deal for the price. I intend to use it throughout the next few years. Ill be majoring in Mining Engineering next fall so I'll be using CAD Civil 3D and CAD Land 3D.

-Just noticed this is the wrong forum too, dont know how I did that... Lol

LOL, you changed the question.

But, to answer the NEW question, yes, that'll be enough cooling.

Edit: You changed it again, LOL. Oh well, both questions answered now.
