I was just wondering if anybody has already made a kind of table that explains which type PSU goes best with what type processor and/or case? They would have to consider how much wattage they would need for extra fans or maybe even a 2nd PSU. Laso speaking of fans. The 90mm system fans that I get from computer shops are around 12v/.15A or so but I've got some 90mm 12v/.55A available. Ist this too high or is it safe?

the more wattage the merrier. But make sure you look at the label for each voltage and combine voltage. Pay attention to the max current supply for 3.3V and 5V b/c the cpu use these to power itself. You need at least 25A 5V for an Athlon cpu
