Hey no problem, i am glad to help. :) 

Here is a useful tool that you may want to take a look at: http://www.antec.outervision.com/ , Just keep in mind this number is to give you a good idea of the power your PC will need and it is in most cases a high estimate.

even though that psu calculator is one of the better ones (it runs off of extreme's psu calc), psu calculators arent that useful. asking psu experts in forums is more fun and better too :p

:lol:  Yeah sure is. Then we have to look up all your PC parts and thier max power consumption, add those up and put a little headroom on there for you. :D 

I know those calcs are not the best but its easy to refer people to them, I am still unsure about there CAP aging and high-end PC and how many watts they add. I usually go with Antec because its clean and easy and not as out of line as ones like Newegg's or Corsair's, Outervisions site is kind-of ugly :)
