Looking for advice on a suitable power supply for this system, plus any optimal/alternate parts advice on this particular build.

The only things not listed that I'd be attaching to this computer would be a pair of DVD drives for burning video.

I will be using this machine primarily for converting vhs tapes to digital, capturing HD video streams from my ps3, secondly for gaming and internet usage.

I'll be using canopus's ADVC-55, and Black Magic Design's Intensity Shuttle for the capturing. Avisynth and Premiere for the encoding/editing

Performance-wise, I'd like to be able to capture anything with these two devices without having to worry about dropped frames or any other throughput problems as far as the computer is concerned

Most video intensive game I own atm is starcraft 2. Don't know what I may get in the future :) 

I plan on using the revo as a scratch disk for the capturing, and the Caviars mirrored for storage. Haven't decided where to install windows 7 prof. to yet. The revo or the caviars

that system should do fine with a high-quality low-end power supply, like the Corsair CX430 or the Antec Earthwatts 380W. Something in the 400-450w range should be all you need as long as its a quality unit. 500w *max*, more than that and you are wasting your money.

goi with Antec, XFX, Corsair, or SeaSonic.
