Go with at least a 750. Look for a PSU calculator online and input the components you will be using. Remember capacitor aging.

Both will be enough.

Here's a Corsair 750watt for $115, and $105 after MIR. Corsair is a better company than Cooler Master when it comes down to making PSUs.

I would get a corsair TX 750 just for the pure fact its corsair and its a long standing tier 1 brand. Even though the other two may be recommended, my tx 750 has not let me down with a moderately OC'd i7-920 @ 3.43 & 2x GTX 260s - SLI (should consume around the same voltage at max)

I figured I throw in a comment, since I seemed to have screwed up myself getting a 'low-quality' PSU. My problem is described in the posting 'Future proof PSU upgrade ' from today; essentially the PSU seems to shut down during heavy gaming (occasionally)

Previous post recommending the Corsair 750 seems good; single rail from reputable manufacturer.
Unless you plan for future crossfire, juice should suffice.
