does my power supply have all the plugs i need??

its fully modular (i think, tpq-850) and this is what it says it comes with
1 x Main connector (20+4Pin)
1 x 4 Pin ATX 12V --- not sure what that covers
1 x 8 Pin EPS 12V --- not sure what that covers
9 x Peripheral --- not sure what that covers
8 x SATA
2 x Floppy --- wont have any floppy drives
4 x PCI-E ---

the case has 6 fans (space for 2 others)
gpu is 5870 or 480 (only 1)
heatsink has 2 fans
2 hd's
1 cd/dvd

if you need more info just ask i want to make sure i can plug it all in with no extra wires.

It'd be better if you just told us what PSU you have and the other parts...

From what I can tell, you have enough connectors. The 4 pin is for the CPU, the Peripheral (molex or 4 pin I'm assuming) is for the case fans (usually more than one can be plugged into a single connector), HDDs and opticals, and you've certainly got enough PCIe connectors. I would just start with all the cables plugged in, install everything and make sure the build turns on, then remove any cables that don't have anything plugged in.
