Buying a new computer next week and I'm willing to spend a bit of money on a new gaming rig. This is the stuff I'm looking at sofar:

I still need PCU and Cooler, any suggestions? How much power will i need to run a system like this? I was thinking around 800.

I plan on overclocking this system too, which is why I'd like to get a cooler. Anyone got input?
