High quality 1000 watt PSUs


I was looking at building a new computer soon, and decided that for my purposes (I7 overclocked and 470 gtx sli with a possible bump in voltage, also overclocked), I would require a 1000 W power supply. Seeing the terrible power draw these cards have I was trying to narrow down my list of PSUs.

Basic requirements include overall brand quality, warranty, high efficiency, and PFC (active or passive) while staying under $250 (I'm in the U.S.)

Any suggestions on brands, models, or product lines would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. :D

P.S. It's not a bad thing if a suggested PSU is more than 1000 W, as I keep seeing a trend of more and more power hungry components (I'm looking at you Nvidia :pfff: )

P.P.S. I was also slightly underwhelmed with Toms first PSU review.
