Yer its a pretty cool site when researching builds. I hope the power usage calculator is accurate though.

Cooler Master has one that isn't bad http://www.coolermaster.outervision.com/advance.jsp
MSI's is nice and simple and every time you change something the output does to http://au.msi.com/power-supply-calculator/

Ultimately though... Get the best you can afford, and get at least one level more than you will need, they run more efficiently and cooler if they aren't maxing out and will last longer.
Also be careful as most vendors only tell you the "Maximum output", which on some PSU's can only be sustained for short periods and only if the right rails (12v, 5v, 3.3v) are loaded to their capacities.
Modular is nice, I prefer to save the money and have a case that has plenty of room to hide then wires anyway.
But if you can try and get something that has a single 12v rail. Keeps things easy and less worry.
