    Any quality psu would last you many years. Brands such as Corsair, Antec, XFX are amongst the best while Seasonic has godlike status (okay... exagerating but damn close).

    Since you have that much to spend (most people will point you to 750-850watter units)....


    I'll just leave this here for you to ponder....

    Do you ever plan on running two GeForce GTX 560 (non-Ti) in a 2-way SLI configuration?

    For a system with a single GeForce GTX 560 graphics card a power supply with 450 Watts or greater with a +12 Volt continuous current rating of 24 Amps or greater and with at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors is recommended.

    For a system with two GeForce GTX 560 graphics cards in 2-way SLI mode a power supply with 600 Watts or greater with a +12 Volt continuous current rating of 37 Amps or greater and with at least four 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors is recommended.

    Corsair's Professional Series HX or Professional Series Gold AX with their seven year warranty would be my recommendation.
  3. +1 @lilotimz. The Seasonic "X" series are among the best PSUs you can get.
  4. Unless you plan on adding another card down the line (which depends on your motherboard also), you should be fine with a XFX Pro 550W.

    If you want a modular PSU then you can opt for the XFX XXX 650W.
