First, do TEC's and pumps require PSU different from ATX power supllies such as Antec, Sparkle etc?

Second, can someone post a link to some power supplies that would be good for running 226 Watt pelt, an 80 Watt pelt, a pump, and maybe some lights?

Is there anything I shoul be careful of when picking out a PSU for these devices?

I think most pumps you are going to want are AC powered with their own cord. However you can rig a relay to turn on your AC powered pump when your Power Supply turns on. I have that setup.
