What power supply for possible future upgrade?

I'm planning on crossfiring my build and buying another 7970. When I checked newegg's recommended psu wattage it recommends 930w excluding fans and such. What would be a good (preferably fully modular) psu for the future build?

My system at the moment:
CPU: i7-4770k
GPU: Asus matrix hd 7970 platinum
MOBO: Asus Maximus VI Formula
CPU Cooler: Antec Kühler H2O 620
Optical Drive: Asus blu-ray bulk
Case fans: 3x corsair AF120 performance, and 1x 120 fan that came with case
Case: Thermaltake commander ms-i (gonna buy obsidian 750d)
Memory: G.skill sniper series 2x4gb ddr3 1866mhz
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1Tb 7200rpm 3,5", Samsung evo 840
PSU: Corsair tx750 80plus bronze
