What's a suitable power supply

I'm thinking of getting the following for a long needed upgrade;

CPU: Intel 4770k
GPU: 2-way SLI GTX 780
MoBo: Asus Maximus Hero
RAM: 4x4gb Corsair Dominator Platinum
Custom liquid loop (Still deciding on pump and other necessities

So what power supply would you guys suggest. (Mainly wattage, but if you can suggest a brand go ahead)

    I believe you'll need at the very least 850W.

    If I were in your situation, however, I'd get a Corsair HX1050. It'll give you more than enough headroom for expandability, pumps, anything you might need.

    Taking into account the build, I assume that spending a bit more money to get a much better PSU isn't that much of a problem (going from a PSU with 850 such as the TX850 or HX850 to a high-end HX1050).

    I was just looking at the corsair HX1050. Looks like that's what I'm getting. Thank you! :D
