What Power Supply Should I Get?

I'm looking for a power supply that will fit my system, here are my specs.
Intel I5-4670k
Geforce GTX 780 Superclocked ACX
msi Z87-g45
NZXT Phantom 410 (White)
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB
Samsung 840 Evo 120 GB
Corsair H80i
Asus VX238H
G-Skill Ripjaws 1600 Mhz (2x8 gb)

I have a CX750M but I am sending it back because people told me it was bad especially since I would be overclocking and I would be going SLI in the future probably.
So, what PSU should I get? My colour scheme is white, red and black just so you don't get a green power supply or something. >_>
Thank you!

I would recommend a good 850w psu. If you are going to Overclock cpu and graphics cards in sli I would say go for 1000w.

Are you sure I need that many watts? And 80 plus platinum? That's a bit excessive I think, can someone else confirm if this is good for my system?

for eventual SLI that's recommended rating. You don't have to go platinum if don't want but the rest of your spec's are well above average also
GeForce GTX 780 2-way SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 750/800 Watt power supply unit as MINIMUM.

For a system using two GeForce GTX 780 graphics cards in 2-way SLI mode NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 850 Watt or greater system power supply that has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 65 Amps or greater* and that has at least two 6-pin and two 8-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

* Minimum system power requirement based on a PC configured with an Intel Core i7 3.2GHz 130 Watt TDP processor.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Sufficient Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most critical factor.

Overclocking of the CPU and/or GPU(s) may require an additional increase to the maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current ratings, recommended above, to meet the increase in power required for the overclock. The additional amount required will depend on the magnitude of the overclock being attempted.

Okay, but I live in Ireland, so ordering from NCIX Canada would cost a fortune.
