Corsair AX850W. Don't get Cooler Master.

By the way which model of Cooler Master is it?

In theory, 850 watts should be enough for that setup.

650W should do but get a 750W. 850 is way overkill.

on sale, 4 power connectors, plenty of power for your video cards and CPU even OC with 650w of continuous power, peaks well above 650w

with two OC GTX 460 in SLI and an OC i7, you barely break 500w

Yep, 650W is plenty but the 750 one is Seasonic. Either way he's good.

Corsair and Seasonic are two brands that have a reputation for high quality power supplies that consistently earn high marks in technical reviews. They are reliable, stable, and come with a 5 year warranty. Some of the newer models come with a 7 year warranty (in the USA).

The Coolermaster power supplies for the most part are just average.
