What is recommended PSU wattage for this build?

Hi,

I'm trying to build my first heavy gaming rig with below specs. I intend to do low to mid OC and possibly do 2 x gtx780 SLI in the near future. Just wondering what is a good brand PSU and wattage needed that can support current and future needs for expansion.

Intel i5 4670K
Asus GTX 780 D2OC
Asus Maximus VI Hero motherboard
1TB WD Caviar Blue
8GB (2x4Gb) G.Skill Sniper 1600MHz
Case Corsair Carbide 200R
Cooler Master Hyper 212X
Asus DVD RW
and a wireless card

also would the cpu cooler good enough for low to mid OC?

Thanks in advance. Cheers.
