Default First Build: PSU

Ok, im puting together my first build, and I have a fairly good knowledge about all the parts except the psu. I guess what Im concerned about is how much wattage i will need, and how will i know if the unit will have enough connections for all the components. Is there adapters that need to be used for certain parts? Here's a list of my parts:

asus deluxe Sli
Athlon 64 X2 3800
GeForce 6800 (plan to Sli later)
harddrive, dvd drive, and probably 2-3 fans.
2g ram

If you plan to use that motherboard, and later on SLI - it might be best you going for a 600...now that would be cool.

No matter how many watts the PSU produces, it will always work.
