1000W should be enough for what you want to do...but I'm not sure about the brand though....take a look at this one

its about the same price.

Two GTX480's pull about 40 amps peaking to 50 amps. I do not think that the 850 watt Corsair has enough reserve power to handle this. Of the three PSU's listed, the Antec is the best choice.

I dont understand what was said above, please explain.

If the GTX 480s pull up to 50A, how can the Corsair 850XT with a 12v rail at 70A be beaten by the antec which uses 4 separate 12v rails at 25A each.

If anything I suggest the Corsair since you don't have to balance the rails. 850W should be enough with a little extra room if you don't overclock the cards.
