  Need help with new system build

Okay. So sometime after the price drops, I am going quad core. Thing is is I am having trouble figuring out what motherboard, PSU and what RAM I want to go. I went to the eXtreme PSU calculator and it says that I need 821watts with the quad core (overclocked), 5 hard drives, 4 sticks of ram 8800GTS overclocked (even SLi), DVD burner and ROM, 4 USB devices, 4 fans (2x120LED) (2x92mm no LED), and the capacitator aging at 30%. Heres the list.

Comments welcome. Please help me figure this out. :)

PS. That Geil RAM hsa been reported running at over DDR2 1000 stable. That G.Skill ram apparently has had reports of cooking itself because of the cheap heat spreaders.

psu wise, sounds about right eveb thou i think a 750w would do as well.
i have a 600w psu but also a lil bit less stuff in the box.
1hdd, 2x ram, 3 fans and 1x 8800 is 320mb

the geil is rated to higher on amd boards not intel. not saying that it won't but i wouldn't
count on it. the g.skill is good. i have the same and it hasn't fried yet and i have been pushing
it with 2.6v on heavy oc. the ballistix is good as well.

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.
