Well I may be upgrading to 64 next year so an MSI nforce4 is not out of the question .

I like the abundance of features on the MSI board.

Also remember that not all power supplies are created equal, so in general try to stick to the following brands:

Antec

Enermax

OCZ

PC Power & Cooling

Tagan

Best to read a few reviews rather than rely on the manufacturers spec. What's written on the box is often a complete fantasy.

I'd go Seasonic S12 series.

The calculator works for me.

Never go by what the box says unless it's from a top maker such as Antec, OCZ, PCP&C, Tagan, etc...

I thought some motherboards or chips required a minium Watt powersupply espically AMD chips or boards. i think it was about 350 Watt minium.

Also i've heard that the higher Watt power supply you get the more reliable the system is. Anyone know if this is true?
