Undecided on PSU

Hey guys, I'm undecided on the following:
1. Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1000W
2. CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-1000HX 1000W

Now I see there's
3. Huntkey X7 900W

that is really cheap.

Specs to run:
AMD X6 1090T
OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1666MHz (will be getting another 4GB next month)
150GB Raptor 10k rpm
WD 1TB 7200rpm
2 x HD5870 Crossfire (will be getting another 5870 for trifire later stage)

Also what do you guys think about the case:
4. Cooler Master HAF 922

Will all the components above fit in the case?

Both power supplies are great, but the Corsair 1000HX is as close as perfect a power supply can get. I would personally go with the Corsair clear cut winner for me.

The HAF 922 is a great case plenty of room and tons of cooling a bit loud but still a great case.

Thanks, so I should stay away from the Huntkey X7 900W

slightly off topic, but... don't you think a 1000 watt power supply is a little over kill for two video cards? A good quality 700 to 750w psu should handle that setup no problem.

yes, for now it's overkill. But I will be getting another 5870 for trifire later stage. That's why the Huntkey 900W seems perfect. But i'm still weary about it compared to top brands.

Oh my bad missed that when I first read it. I would go with a tier 2 rated power supply. They are all pretty close in build quality, just make sure they provide sufficient amps per rail etc. Because tri fire will draw quite a bit of power.
