So I went through it all and I got 403 Watts so if I went to a 600w I should have leg room?

I'd get this (actually, it's due to arrive any day now): Seasonic

The only complaint seems to be short cables... so if you're building in a small case (mid tower), like me, it's the p/v winner imo. Bigger case (full tower), well.. probably not so great.

Based on what? At 80+ gold the 550w PSU I linked for him will be more than adequate. You would have to pay a bit more for a 600w that was better (and even then it wouldn't be required).
