Planning on doing this build:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: Asus SABERTOOTH Z77 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Storage: Samsung 830 Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB Video Card
Case: Cooler Master HAF X ATX Full Tower Case

Any PSU suggestions?

(Since were here, CPU Coolers too?)

Not overclocking, prefer modular.
I wonder if I really need the 16GB of Ram, I only FRAPS and Render once in a while.. (Full 1080p)

Was thinking XFX, Corsair, SeaSonic PSU's.

SeaSonic M12II 650 SS-650AM 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Semi-modular Power Supply
109.99

If you want the best then this would be it , of course if you would have given a budget to work with would know if this was too expensive to suggest.
If your not going to use the ram all the time then you can make do with 8 gb but that would be up to you.
A good cpu cooler would be;

COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM1/AM3+
$34.99 and a $5 rebate makes the final price $29.99.

The size of the power supply would also depend on whether or not you plan on another video card for SLI.

Ok drop the 16gb of ram to 8 gb and change the Sabertooth mobo for one of these...

The Sabertooth is really an unnecessary expense.
Put the extra mone to a decent PSU a good 650w unit would be ample but id get an 850w for upgrading heres a couple of perfect ones..
1st choice

2nd choice more expensive not really any better..
