Default Need a couple suggestions

Hey guys

I'm workin on getting a new pc put together and im lookin at getting a few suggestions...

MOBO: ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe AM2
CPU: AMD Athlon X2 4000+
RAM: A-Data PC6400 2GB
GPU: Single 8600gt (i will get dual 8800's later on)
HD: 200GB WD Sata

Thats my setup so far, looks good for me . Anyway, i was wondering what you guys thought would be a sufficient PSU, im probably going to get an 80% efficiency PSU but i didnt know what wattage to get for SLI later on. I know ill obviously want dual rail and suff like that, but i thought i would as you guys what you had running in your dual core rigs. Also, what would be a good cpu cooler, im a major overclocker and i was just looking at a simple 110cm Zalman but i didnt know if there was anything better out there.

Thanks,
Kyle

Its almost a personal preference because the top coolers like the Zalman 9700, Thermal Right ultra 120 extreme, Scythe Infinity are all really close in performance.
