I may be wrong. I had not paid close attention and didn't realize that you have six hard drives.

I would suggest a 750w or better branded quality PSU. Your graphics card alone requires a 500w minimum add to that all your hard drives. Cpu and opticale drives, not to mention your heatsink fan and additional fans.
Here's a link to a program that will help you get a general idea of what power supply you'll need, This is by no means definitive but you should always get more than required.
Personally I consider the power supply as a very important core piece of hardware not to be skimped on. Hope this will help. Fabe http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

DamDam remember more devices the more power you're going to need you have 6 hdd well hot diggity you're going to need more power that is some major business you got there i think a 750 or 850 watt would be enough could be wrong but i would go that high since you are running more then 2 hdd and also if your running a high end cpu and vidcard such as Nvidia product by all means GET MORE POWER

6TB of Hard drives and only 3 gigs of memory is odd!
You will need at least 850 watts of powere.

I'd get the 850w Corsair, or if money was an issue, the 750w Antec. I see no gain the 750w Corsair would give you over the other two. If you can afford it, definitely get a 850w power supply, as it would be more likely to work well.

Vist Asus.com -- They have a calculator all you do is fill in your devices and it will give you a wattage.
