IMO it's always a good idea to have more power then you'll need at the moment. It allows you to upgrade to some of the newer cards that would come out over the next year or two. Also taking into consideration the proficiency of the supply the extra room insures you've made a future proof investment. With the power supply more times than not being skimped on, it's nice to see all the suggestions keeping this in mind.I'm also an OCZ guy. Fabe

That's the reason that I don't recommend crappy power supplies or cases for that matter. I simply hate noisy computers...there really isn't a reason that you should hear the computer across the room these days.
You can hear my machine from another room.

I'm not seeing any particular reason why that statement would be a source of pride or something to smile about.
