And soultribunal, I am waiting for the new release for the ivy bridge, and planning to get the core i5 K series.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the PC components that draws the most power would be the graphics card and cpu itself right?
Yuppers. Unless you are like our resident Storage GURU (AkG) and have 20 HDD's in a Rig the biggest components for power draw are your CPU and GPU's.

According to my UPS I draw 488 at Full load so that should give a good baseline.
And if you are going IVY then you will have even less power consumption vs what I run.

Get yourself a good Quality unit and you should have zero issues.
