Okay, so i'm going to be building a computer soon, and someone told me i may want to make sure i have enough power, heres what i plan to build, is 750w enough?

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Processor w/ Stock Heatsink: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU: 1x Nvidia 8800GT & 1x Nvidia Geforce Gtx 560

Ram: 2x 240pin DDR3 4GB (I may purchase another set of two in the future making it 4x, but At the moment it is 2x)

Harddrive - 1x 1TB

DVD Drives- 2x

My PC Chasis is the Dell Xps 630I, and has color changing LED's all around the case, i'm not sure howmuch power that consumes

Mouse- http://www.logitech.com/en-us/mice-pointers/mice/device...

Keyboard- Is the stock keyboard that came with the system, nothing particularly special

The speakers don't particularly matter because they're serpretly plugged in

So do you guys think 750w will support all of that?

Thank you wise users of tom's hardware :D

Are you planning on using SLI? Are you gonna use the 8800GT as a phys x card? For that system 750w is way to much.
