Well that time has come again to upgrade my Game box.

These are the specs I'll now have:

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R
E6750 or E6850
Mushkin XP2-8500
Evga 8800GTX
Corsair HX520W
Sony DRU-810A DVD/RW
X-Fi XtremeMusic
WD Raptor 150GB
1 - 120MM Front Case Fan
2 - 80MM Rear Case Fans

Evga lists the 8800GTX for a 475W PSU, will the Corsair HX520W be enough to power the new P35, Intel C2D 1333, and 8800GTX CPU with this PSU?

How much watts will I use with this new rig, I figured I must be pushing close to 500W, and if I am is that cool to run a PSU close to max all the time?

Probably in the vicinity of 350-400. I wouldn't worry about it.. the Corsair model you're going with is a good PSU. It's a single 12V rail design, if I recall correctly, and those are really good for systems like yours.
