No graphics card?

That's what will matter most when sizing a PSU.

Dual or single, it doesn't matter.

Any other options? Never heard of Powercool. Can't find any reviews at the usual review sites.

That size PSU - assuming it's a high quality part - is good for 2 graphics cards like GTX 670.


For a system like you describe:
Sabertooth x58 & i7 965, 24GB Ram, NVidia Quadro 600 1GB Graphics, Water cooled, 6 Controlled fans, 2 Cold cathode rays, & 3D Blue Ray ...

A 450W PSU will be plenty of power.

Even a very high quality 380W~400W PSU would have enough power.
