Hey guys, I'm looking to build a portable PC. I'm looking for a PSU that is not overkill, light, small and most importantly-thin. I won't be using a graphic card or OCing, though OCing in the future is a possibility.

Here is what I have planned below:

ASUS P8H61-I (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI USB 3.0 Mini ITX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131727

Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231486

Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Klipsch ProMedia ProMedia 2.1 2.1 Speaker
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16836119101

Six 80mm/100mm Fan (I'm building my own ultra thin custom case)

Dual monitor 19 inch (build into case) and main 27/30 inch.

I'm thinking 250watt might be enough? I want to build a custom case with a 19 inch laptop screen build into the case. I will also be hooking it up with a 27 or 30 inch monitor.

Thanks for any help!
 
... OCing in the future is a possibility.
An unlocked K series processor on an H61 Express chipset?

Intel® H61 Express Chipset does not enable overclocking features of unlocked FCLGA1155 Intel Core processor family K series.

You will have to look at the ASUS P8Z77-I DELUXE if you want to utilize the unlocked multipliers of the i5-3570K.

I have looked into that board but it only has one DVI port. I'm not sure how to dual monitor with that without a video card? perhaps I won't be overclocking then.

How many watts do I need for this setup?

He said he was building his own case. But yeah won't need a lot of power. Only problem I've found is that a lot of the fans on the lower end PSUs tend to be loud.

That PSU is anything but lower end. I'm running it with a i5-660 and a GTX570 and it is silent. The only time the fans get audible is when I'm gaming and the GFX cards fans spin up, but I'm too preoccupied with other things to notice.
