My current build is
i7 950 - 3.06
500gb WD cav blue hardrive
12 gb Gskills sniper ddr3 ram 1600 mhz
gtx 480 amp
evga x58 sli3
750w TR2 RX powersupply
Antec df - 85 case

I was wondering what strength of powersupply I would need to run the following:
i7 950 oc - 4.0 ghz
Noctua Nh-d14
2 1tb wd cav black hd (storage)
2 120gb ocz SSD in raid
24 gb Gskills 1600 DDr3 ram
evga x58 sli 3 mobo
and Zotac gtx 480 amp in SLI
and a df-85 case with 7 120mm fans tricool fans and 2 140mm twocool case fans

So essentially I need to find a powersupply with enough cords for all my case acessories and enough amps to run Zotac gtx 480 amps

Also any recomendations on better cooling to sound fans would be nice

Plus ya system specs into here:

Also check:

900 watt minimum

In a DF-85, I'd get the CP-1000 ..... other choices would be the HCP-1200..... Corsair HX1000 or AX1200

24gb RAM? Are you crazy, or do you know something I don't? If there's a reason you got that much beyond some idea that more is better, please tell me, because it's probably revolutionary.
