I was thinking of getting ahte Thermaltake 680W power supply but then i noticed that i could get a Enermax 600w one for practically the same price, or a Antec True 550 watt. I dont really have any need for 680 watts but i figure it cant hurt. My system specs will be

Athlon 64 3200+
ASUS A8N-SLI
Saphire Radeon X850XTPE Vivo
Corsair PC3200 XL 512MB x2 matched pair
Western Digital Raptor 36GB
Western Digital 200GB 7200rpm Serial ATA
LiteOn SOHW-1653S
Coolermaster CM Stackers
Philips 200P4VB/00
Logitech MX1000 Cordless Laser Mouse
Microsoft Digital Media Keyboard
Creative Inspire T7700

I'd get the Enermax. And to tell you the truth, I think all 3 of those are capable of an actual output of around 600W, give or take a few watts.

Ive got that particular 680W PSU and it runs steadier and cooler than any PSU that I have ever had. It is more than you need and may be more than you will need for years to come. I would probably follow Crashmans advise if I were you. He know PSU's better than anyone here at THG.
