ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z w/ FX-9590 what 1000w + Power Supply to use?

I am buying an ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z motherboard and plan to game with it. I have a FX-9590 cpu and a R9 290 gpu. I will in the future expand to crossfire gpus so I want pleanty of available power. I also have 7 fans (some140mm and 200mm) and a cpu liquid cooler that comes with the cpu.

What power supply will have the connectors I need and what are the specific connectors I am looking for?

Thanks!

  1. A Corsair HX850 (850 watts) will work well and you can do a 2-way GPU crossfire and runn all the listed items.
