Corsair HX1000

Corsair has a reputation for high quality power supplies. They consistently earn high marks in technical reviews. They are reliable, stable, and come with a 5 year warranty.

Here is a link to a technical review:

I prefer single rail PSUs

I'd go with a Corsair 950TX

If you were going to go all out I'd go with the PC Power&Cooling Turbo-Cool 1200

jeep11 - If I remember correctly just about all of the high quality power supplies rated at 1000 watts and above have genuine multiple rails.
