  1. I like Corsair, they have a great track record with me and are very reliable. This should do you fine for your current build

  2. nVidia itself recommend 500W for a single 670.

  3. Would that be future proof? as in if i add extra memory or graphics cards will it keep being effective?

    For testing conducted for SLI 670, the resulting system consumption for SLI is 433W of which 293W are attributed to the gpu cards.

    All points out to 750W being more than enough.
