Default Time to spend me some money (PSU)

Hello all.


I want to change my PSU in my main pc as the old one is getting kinda noisy. Could you rate me one which will complement the below system.

QX6700 Stock atm (might overclock)
eVGA 780i
8Gb DDR2 (4x2gb) 800Mhz
8800 GTX (might go sli if i can with vista 64bit)
Xfi xtreme music with breakout box
wireless g card
bluray/hd combo drive
dvdrw dual layer
2x500gb hdd might get a raptor raid config


Cheers.

P.s I tried xtreme power calculator and it told me I needed 543w (inc 20% capacitor aging) if that gives any help.

cheers

I'd say something between 750W-850W would be fine. I'm partial to Corsair, Silverstone, and Antec.
