I originally intended to integrate a BLU-RAY combo drive but I've since decided not to- I do not own, nor will probably ever own a BLU-RAY while DvD is still out and about. Also I was considering as a sound card.

It is important to note that the case I have my eye on does come with an 80+ bronze cert. 380w PSU. My question with that is should I invest in a higher wattage power supply? At first I am already considering this, there's only 2 SATA connections on the PSU- which is a big deterrent. Any advice towards this?
Also, I want to keep everything as silent as possible. A close friend is recommending the above case due to his experience with it and it's capabilities/quality.
My biggest concern is that I do not know much about the tuners, and I am still researching softwares and proper combinations thereof- any advice/suggestions as to where to get a good run down on that would be great. As far as affordability- I am not too concern about the price tag to an extend- I'm not spending gobs of $$ on this but I am willing to venture outside the comfort zone for quality products that deliver results. It is also important in my design that I compensate for future expansion/upgrade- I may integrate this in the future as a secondary gaming platform as well.
I certainly appreciate any advice given or criticism delivered- I'm pretty open-minded when it comes to learning something new. Thanks in advance! :-)
