This 750W 80-plus Gold Seasonic 750W PSU will cover you for one or two GPUs and any OCs on that system and is currently less expensive than it's 550W and 650W siblings due to promotions:

What do you think about this deal. The sale ends today so I need to jump on it if you think it is good. I will take you word for it and get it right nowhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The one I suggested previously is $79.99 and 80-plus gold rated. It is better than the one you've listed, made by one of the top manufacturers of power supplies in the world (Seasonic) and cheaper. The Hive-edition PSUs are produced by Sirtec which is a decent manufacturer for some supplies, but there is no argument that makes sense for chooseing the Rosewill PSU over the Seasonic in this case. Price, efficiency and quality are all better with the Seasonic. I would buy the PSU I suggested. It's a heck of a deal right now.
