For a single GTX 780, a corsair HX 650 is enough.
For two GTX 780 SLI, a HX 750 would be ok but if overclocking HX 850 would be better

to bad with H61 cant o/c! you dont really need 750w. 650w would be more than enough. even so check this one seasonic made and brand new

Of the choices listed, I would go for the HX 750 which is made with all solid japanese capictors and a 7 year corsair warranty. I'm personally a seasonic guy but my last CWT was rock solid and served me well for over 5 years - I have no problem recommending this product for good build quality.
