Posting your build would help, only buy as much as power as you need unless you want multi gpu setups in the future.

Depends on what your system specs are.. Which GPU's do you have, CPU, RAM, etc?
You'll need to know how much power your system needs, before purchasing a PSU.

If you shopping by brand, Corsair & Seasonic are 2 of the best.....

In general SINGLE GPU, 650watts.....

DUAL GPU 850watts......

NOTE: the 750watt units you listed would Only be good for DUAL GPUs for mid-range cards and below a GTX760 or so...

CPU : Intel Xeon E3-1230v2 3.3ghz OC 3.7ghz
MB:ASUS Maximus V Extreme
RAM : One 8Gb Transcend Jetram 1600 Mhz , One Kingston HyperX Blu 8Gb 1600Mhz
SSD/HDD : 2TB Seagate Hardrive , 128Gb Samsung 840 PRO SSD
GPU : MSI GTX 780ti (Might do alittle overclocking)

Looking for a PSU that lasts long enough and safe and doesnt have and problem.

Then yes. 780TI needs minimum a 600w 42a PSU. So a 650w psu could do the job easily. I'd get a 700-750 since you have overclocking in mind, just to have enough headroom, which is safer. So yes, get a 750w PSU, either Seasonic, XFX, or Corsair. Never Coolermaster, their PSU's are terrible.
