Ok, so I'm going to build my own computer, but I'm worried about the power supply...
It has got more than enough watts, but I'm not sure if it has the sufficient cables :p 
Never built a computer before, and I need help xD

Specifications
Case: In-Win Dragon Rider
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R
Processor: Intel Core i7 960
Memory: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 CL9
Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 6970 2GB
Hard disk: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12
Power Supply: Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 800W PSU

I'm gonna be using Windows 7 Home Premium as an operating system.

So, any reply will be greatly appreciated - As always :D

I don't want to change parts, I want to know if the power supply is compatible with the other parts.
I know it works with the motherboard, but does it work with the CPU, GPU etc?

And why you don't want to get something better?Whatever...

Power Supply is completly overkill...lot's of watts which you don't need..600-700 is more than enough

I said that wasn't the part i was worried about, but you are still answering only that...
I may overclock, get watercooling, and get another one of the 6970 :p

If you have any idea what you're talking about, could you PLEASE do some research and see if these parts are compatible?

Thanks - again

I don't need to do a research for something obvious to me...For Good quality psus it goes..

550w - Mid-High Range system at stock speeds

650w - High End System with either o/c cpu one gpu or stock cpu dual gpu (not higher than 6950 or 560ti)

750w- Oveclocked cpu dual gpu

>750w - Overclocked cpu and dual overclocked gpus
