I'm building a new system completely from scratch, and here's the specs:

EVGA GeForce GTX 470 1280MB GPU
EVGA X58 SLI LE motherboard
3x Corsair 1333MHz 2GB RAM
Intel i7 Quad Core at 3.06GHz
Seagate 1.5TB 7200RPM HDD
2x Intel 40GB SSDs

I was just wondering what kind of power supply I would need for this setup?

A Good 650W Corsair is plenty, and seem to be a good spot to stop. Not enough for SLI though. 750-850W for CF for only an extra 40.

Okay, thanks...that is what I was thinking, too. I might just steal my power supply from my old computer and just buy a little one for it.

About those 2x40GB SSDs... planing to RAID'em?
I think, it is better to buy a single 90GB OCZ Vertex 2 or a single 128GB Crucial C300.
If you have money in the future you can buy one more SSD and RAID them.
