Ok heres my questions this time.

Ive been looking at a Dual 570 Superclocked Setup now. but Im having a problem with the PSU selection. Ive been spending some time doing some looking at PSUs and Ive read reviews and posts that people can do them with 800w PSUs but they dont leave much headroom and run the risk of always being maxed out. how big of a PSU do i need to run dual 570s. Theres nothing on the SLI zone for dual 570s just 470s and the other new cards and older cards. I figure a 900w+ should be good enough but again im not sure because I am looking to do some minor overclocking of both my CPU and ram posibally.
what PSU do you use? and or what one do you Recomend?

Now on the SSD I was looking at a Mushkin 120gb SSD that I would run for both my OS and the most played games. I went with Muskin because of the reviews ive read and its return rate on them are very low. But what I am now thinking is going a bit smaller and putting my OS and games on but since its smaller I will have to be more slective on what games I put uron it and Move games back and forth from storage to my SSD depending on the rate of play. What SSD do you use and or which do you recomend and which size is most common?

850w+ Will give you enough headroom for overclocking.

I'd recommend this.

On your average system the card requires you to have a 600 Watt power supply unit.
GeForce GTX 570 in 2-way SLI

A second card requires you to add another ~225 Watts. You need a 750+ Watt power supply unit if you use it in a high-end system (800+ to a KiloWatt is recommended if you plan on any overclocking).

Also if you care there is a really good on two GTX 570s on new egg right now.

This is a good 120Gb SSD.

When I upgrade to one I'm either going to get a 240 Vertex 3, or two 120s in Raid.

Those are all fairly costly, however. Just what I personally plan on doing.
