What factors need to be added together to determine how big of a power supply one would need? I've heard it's not about how many watts it puts out, but how many amps? I'm currently reworking a build plan but I'm not sure if what sort of PSU i'd need to run everything...
Thoughts on if this PSU will be enough?

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!
