Help with spoke size

Hi, I've just bought some new hubs, Novatec front D811SB (FH) - Novatec and rear D812SB (RH) - Novatec 32 hole versions, I now intend on buying some Mavic XC717 V-brake rims, and some DT Swiss Competition Spokes, and having these wheels made up locally. My problems as the title suggests is I have no idea what size spokes to buy, I've looked at the various calculators on the Internet but none I have found list these hubs. So was wondering if anyone kind enough could point me in the right direction or workout what I need, I've found some spokes at reasonable price that come with 12mm brass nipples, which I take it will be ok ?, I just need to know what sizes to order.

Thank you.

    just take the hubs and rims to the wheel builder and let them supply the spokes.

    have a read of sheldons pages or Parktools for info on measuring hubs (or even Hopes web page)
    also find the ERD for the rim.
