Default Modular power supplies - what do I really need etc

I've searched the forums and I've read quite a bit of Skymtl's reviews but as usual I'm left with more questions. I'm always looking to max out the price/performance ratio so I think I could do very well in the $130 range give or take. Here is what I'm thinking of buying....

Q6600 (probably won't overclock)
Intel Badaxe MoBo
Patriot Extreme 2x1gb pc2-6400 cl4.4.4.12 (may go with 4 gigs)
EVGA 8800GT Superclocked 650mhz 512mg DDR3
4x Seagate 750gig 7200.11 (eventually)
Probably a SATA burner or 2
HT Omega Claro 7,1 sound card
I also have 2 external hd enclosures right now, both firewire.
I'm also trying to decide between the NXZT Hush and the Silverstone Kublai KL01B
EDIT: I'm thinking of also getting an Artic Freezer to go with this but I doubt they draw much power

Overall suggestions would also be welcome. Some of my choices are due to the fact that I will be installing the hackintosh so I can run Logic and get rid of my iMac. I've been seriously considering the Corsair HX520 but was wondering if there was other PS I should be considering.
