You need a good 750 watt or above PSU. How much budget do you have?

Both are equally good. Seasonic makes their own PSU's and often for others as well (including Corsair). Thus it scores a point extra over Corsair here. Corsair units though are slightly cheaper but of equivalent quality and performance. Basically, you can't go wrong with either.

if you are on a budget but wanted a very good quality hi wattage psu, i suggest you go for the FSP everest 800w. check it out, its really cheaper than any 800w corsair & seasonic but its as good as any high end psu out there. you wont go wrong with that psu.

Assuming a 100% load utilization and generous allowance for additional devices (six fans, an extra PCI card, overclock, four USB devices, and four ram DIMMs), you are looking at a MAX draw of 650w.

That would be simultaneously pushing your CPU and GPU to their limits, which would never happen outside of a linpack and GPU test at the same time.

However, if you add a second GTX 570 (SLI), your power consuming jumps to 850w, which is probably the line of thinking of people suggesting a PSU over 1000w.

However, if you have no plans on going SLI, a 750w PSU will serve you fine.

Just remember, total wattage is not the most crucial factor when picking out a PSU, but total voltage available on the +12V, +5V, and +3.3V rails.
