How's it going? I'm working on a new rig. I'm having some trouble picking out a PSU. I would like to keep it under $200. Here's what I'm putting in:

2x EVGA GTX 460 1g
i7-950
ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution
G.Skill 3x2g
OCZ Vertex 2 SSD 100g

I'm guessing 850w will be enough. I do plan on over-clocking, and I probably won't be expanding.

Thanks!

Edit:
Taking a look at these.

Out of the PSU's you listed I would go with the corsair HX850 I have one and I must and im really impressed. 7 year warranty , tons of cables and the most important stable power. Yes the PSU you mite be overkill for your set up as it is for mine, but I got it with the idea that I wouldn't have to upgrade PSU for a while. Here is a good review on the PSU

The HX is a really nice unit. I went with a thermaltake blackwidow 850 to run my dual gtx460 beast. I didnt wantt o wait for shipping and Bestbuy had it in stock and on sale... so far no problems with it (2 months now) or my 2 yr olf 650w Blackwidow.
