Be sure to add capacitor aging in the calculation. If you haven't done so it may be less than 540W.

Also, I am not so sure the lower end Thermaltakes actually can deliver what you need. I pulled one out of a build because it didn't cool very well under stress.

I have nearly the same system as yours (Dell). I think the Q6600 is a lame duck. But I run it with an SSD - that alleviates the problem a bit. My Vaio laptop with an i7 is faster (also with an SSD). If I were you, I would add a 60 or 90GB OCZ Vertex 2 or 3 for the OS (budget allowing).

Ever since I retired my huge CRT monitor, I have been very unsatisfied with the performance of my 75Hz maximum LED monitor. Don't get me wrong, it's great for movies and everyday use, but for gaming it has done nothing but leave me yearning for something with a higher refresh rate. I see that...
