Alright this is everything i want in my Dream Computer
1x Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 [OC: 3500MHz/2.00V (i don't know how much to add on)
2x Nvidia Geforce 9600GT (SLI)
2x Sata HDD
1x CD drive
1x DVD/CD-R Burner combo
3x USB
1x 80mm LED fan
1x 92mm fan
1x 120 mm fan
90% load

And i get about 550Watts. Since i'm also OC my graphic cards, 650watts is about right, right?

if you put 2.0 volts to a quad you'd fry it

Max is 1.5

Going from 3600 @ 2.0 volts to 3600 @ 1.5 (max) drops the watts by 160

Awesome, looking at a Corsair 650watts does not look bad at all. But I want OC my video card, but somewhat of a noob. I see a guy in another tread that said this:

I would say 750 to give a bit of "grow" room.

the Antec True Power Trio 650w has 56A @ +12V, my True Power Trio 550W has 54A @ +12V, that might even be enough, but id go with the 650w to be safe, anything more is overkill.

That rig would draw about 300w max at the wall. I would a decent branded PSU with at least 40A on the 12v. (and that's with a large safety margin of error)

Even 650W is overkill. A nice 500W PSU will serve you well. I recommend the Corsair 550VX or 520HX. However, if you were to want room for upgrades, I would recommend you either get the 650TX or 620HX.
