If you're planning to use two power hungry graphics cards, on top of everything else, then you're going to need a really beefy power supply. 1000W may do the trick, but I'd go for 1200W, if if fits your budget.

Just remember that WinXP can only handle up to 4GB of RAM, so you'll need either Vista or some variation of Linux to use 8GB.

Seems like you're going for a really juicy system. Hope it works perfect.

The more power that your PSU can put out, the more likely it is to keep a stable power flow through your system, so the bigger the better in that respect. My personal preference of a PSU would be Coolermaster, but there are many out there and all are subject to personal preference.

If you are certain that the games and applications you will be using can take advantage of the 64bit architecture, then go ahead and get Vista 64, but personally I'd go for the 32bit, mainly because of the higher compatibility levels. Very few software developers are looking at 64bit in any sincerity at the moment, so you won't be gaining anything by using that OS for now. Save it until the software you're planning on using comes up with real 64 bit support.

I don't really know which sites to recommend, as I live in Iceland and have no knowledge one way or the other. Hopefully you'll get the help you need from someone here, or at least you can use Google to search for online shops in Canada and maybe some in the US that don't charge you way too much for delivery.
