Default PSU advice...will it run?

i know my stuff isn't too high-end..but just wondering.

CPU:E8400 @ 3.6GHZ -->Zalman 9700NT HSF (Planning to OC more)
GPU:2-way SLI PNY 8800GTS--> Zalman VF900 x2 (Planning to OC when I learn how to use Riva tune properly =P [got tips/advice? pm me]
HDD:WD 500 GB, MAXTOR 320 GB, WD 150GB Raptor, 2x WD 250GB
MOBO:Asus Striker 2 Formula (should i get a NB heatsink or anything?)
RAM:PATRIOT VIPER DDR2 800 mhz 4GB (4-4-4-12) [may switch to OCZ REAPER HPC 1066MHZ 4GB 5-5-5-18 i think?]
DVD:LG DVD
PSU:CORSAIR 750W --currently
CASE:Antec 900 (switching out into my Silverstone TJ07)
SOUND:SupremeFX (Switching out to Auzentech Prelude)
Keyboard:Logitech G15 V2
Mouse:Razer DeathAdder

ADDTIONAL: 2 x Scythe Ultra Kaze (3000RPM), possibly up to 6 cathodes
(btw, TJ07 has 4x 120mm and 2x 92mm fans)
I know I'm going to need to get a little more than I need...but my question is, will my Corsair TX750W hold up in the TJ07 for now?
or will I have to wait to get the Corsair HX1000W before i switch out ?

I don't understand. You wonder if cables are long enough for new case or if PSU is enough for your setup? In both cases I'd say yes.
And for RivaTuner you have a very good guide here.

I fail to see the issue. The 750Watt Corsair is MORE than enough to power that system, I don't know what ever gave you the idea that you need more.

Relax, take a deep breath, enjoy your new sexy case, because you have a very good quality 750Watt PSU, with more than enough power to, well, power your system.
