I appreciate your suggestion and recommendation, from the components I've listed what would you say my wattage consumption will be? Remember, that's 2 9800 GTX + 's, 3 1TB hd's, blue ray, and a CM HAF 932. I know I changed up on the case. Down the road I'd like to do water cooling and be able to add some uv lights and some other bling. I know the psu is over kill for now, but I'd like to be able to mod the system and not be limited by the psu. Without the uv lights and the water pump what do you think my power needs would be?
edit...I won't use any Antec psu...been there before and was disappointed.
Well, there are numerous PSU calculator sites around the net. I've used this one and it's the most reasonable I've seen.
According to the parts in Arbor's list and the PSU calc, your 90% load used wattage would be 420w. The 500w I suggested is a good unit and would support all this, plus some water cooling and lights. It would be cutting quite close though. I originally specced the PSU calc out for 1 harddrive and it was only about 370w at full load.
A good 550w PSU will do just fine.

Also, Antec, makes some great PSUs, save for their Basiq series. Those just plain suck. Their TruePower, Signature, Neo/NeoHE, and EarthWatts lines of PSUs are top notch though.
