Even a decent 600-650 watt PSU is sufficient for your setup.

cool--i'll take the 650W XFX I had.

why does ASUS recommend a 750W minimum PSU?

Asus power supply calculator always recommends a higher wattage which i believe is an overkill.
Get a XFX or Corsair.

What about an fx 8350 and a crossfire set up for 2 asus 280x matrix's? Would a gold rated 850 be enough or would gold rated 1000 be needed?
