PSU for future Xfire

Hi, any suggestions for a reliable PSU for Xfiring x2 R9 290's? I have a budget of about £110.

I currently have a 1200w Xclio Greatpower PSU, but I'm not sure if this is a particularly good PSU and worried it might fail when I eventually Xfire.

i7 3770 OC'd + Noctua NH-D14
16GB DDR3 1600Mhz (x4 4GB)
4 HD's


Cheers :)

    This should do, although I'd highly recommend a 1000W unit: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1850bbefx
    If you can afford it, this 1000W unit is maybe the best one for that price: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220p21000xr

    EDIT: Your current PSU should do, it's ranked as a tier 2B unit: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html
