This spring I'm upgrading almost my entire PC (keeping HDD and GPU)

The setup will be
-NXZT Phantom 530 black (chassis)
-Kingston Hyperx black 16 gb (4x4gb) (ram)
-Asus Crosshair V Formula Z (mobo)
-AMD FX 9590 (watercooled by Corsair H100i) (processor)
-And a couple of fans and LED lighting

I currently have a R9 280x that I will be keeping, but I want the PSU to be able to handle them crossfire.

Should I get the 850w psu or the 1000w psu which is only 300 NOK more (36 euro) ?
Any other advice will also be much appreciated :D 

Thanks in advance :)

850w will be enough for that setup with the crossfire.

Okay.
Is the RM 850 good in terms of price and preformance, or would you recommend something else?

In the US there are better options that are cheaper than the RM series. I would get an XFX, or Seasonic or one of corsairs Hx or AX series over the RM. Here's an example

Would you say the XFX XXX edition is better?

Yes the XFX is made by Seasonic(one of if not thee the best PSU manufactures around).
