Here's what I have planned atm:

Video card:
-Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 -
Tower:
-Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case-
Processor:
Intel Core i7-860 Lynnfield 2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor
Mobo:Gigabyte P55A-UD3 Motherboard - Intel P55, Socket LGA1156, ATX, Dual-Channel DDR3, PCIe, USB 3.0, SATA 6Gb/s

I want to add in this cooler to make sure my CPU runs nice and chilly:
Cooler Master V8 CPU Fan - Socket 1366/775/AM2/AM2+,1156, AM3 120mm Fan, Modular Aluminum Fins

This thing is a beast of a fan and is quite big. While I'm worried if it'll fit in my tower, I also want to make sure my PSU can provide enough juice:

Corsair TX650W 650-Watt Power Supply - ATX, 120mm Fan, SLI-Ready, SATA-Ready, 80Plus

Is this okay? Thanks for the help :)

Plenty of power, you could run 2 5770s in CF with plenty left over on that PSU.

The fan doesnt pull any significant amount of power, maybe 5-10 watts, really not a significant concern.

Ahh okay, that explains the confusion. That is the amount of heat that it can dissipate. It is rated to handle the cooling of a CPU that uses up to 180W of power and therefore generates 180W of heat.
