How big of a Power Supply do I Need?

by BKennelly - 3/10/09 10:33 AM

I have been looking at the idea of building a computer when I get enough money and have been compiling a list of parts that I would like in my system and have arrived at the ones below. The only problem is that I haven't been able to figure out, how much power a system like this would need?

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

All parts below are from Newegg if you copy the N82E168 number into Newegg you should be able to find more specs on the part if need be

Motherboard: EVGA 132-BL-e758-A1; N82E16813188039
Processor: Intel Core i7 920 2.66GHz; N82E16819115202
Hard Drive: 2 Western Digital 750GB; N82E168221136131
Video Card: 2 EVGA GeForce 9800GT 1GB; N82E16814130440
Memory (RAM): G.SKILL 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 1333; N8216820231223
with plans to upgrade to 12GB later on

Speakers: Logitech 2.1 speaker system; N82E16836121014
Pen Tablet: Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet; N82E16823100045
to come at a later date

Also I have plans to eventually add a internal Bluray burner, and possibly overclock the processor some, Not sure yet.
