550 watts maybe 600 but not more that would be overkill find a good 550 watts not a crappy 750 watts

you still won't need more than 550 watts . . . again getting a 700+ is just plain silly, your idle efficiency will suck. a 750 watt can Xfire two 7970s.

"FineWine®" just means that it's currently swill.

Agreed, anything over 550-600w would be overkill for that system. That said, I found a decent 600w Corsair @ Tigerdirect.ca that is exactly $80 CAD.

Corsair CX600M

That or the XFX 550 already mentioned, i own one powering a similar spec'd system as that, but with a gtx260 core 216 and 7 fans....same power output as your planning.....
I'd go with the xfx, it's slightly cheaper, and is made by seasonic....
