Looking for a PSU that will work well with this build, looking for a PSU that is Black in color preferably that will fit in a nzxt phantom case. Please let me know if something in the build looks out of place or wrong, this is kind of my first time building a computer. Thanks in advance.

-The Build-
2x EVGA GTX 660 Ti SC in 2-way SLI
Asrock Extreme4
Intel i5-3570k
Corsair Vengeance 8GB
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
1tb WD HDD Black

I plan to add LED's and more fans as well so I am not sure how much they will effect power consumption but I thought I'd throw that out there.

A great PSU for your setup is the Seasonic M12II 650W (around $90).

It's modular. It has four 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors to accommodate your two video cards. It has a 5-year warranty and is made by one of the top PSU manufacturers out there.

Also, those LED lights don't use much power at all. Almost negligible.

Guru3d recommend a 700w minimum psu for SLI GTX660ti's on your AVERAGE system. This means if your overclocking I would go with at least a 750w unit.

I certainly wouldn't recommend a CX600, although it MAY be enough if your NOT overclocking anything, your not going to be running in it's optimal efficiency zone.

Here's some choices on sale. I'm not really a fan of the CX series, it's Corsairs cheapo model. I'd recommend the EVGA (FSP) or the Corsair TX (SEasonic). Both have 5yr warranty, CX has 3yr warranty.
