Right PSU for me?

Hello,

I am looking for a power supply that meets my needs without over-spending (cheaper the better), but with a trusted brand and will give my computer room to grow.

Right now it would just need to power 1x 24in Asus monitor, and a MSI R7850 Power Edition 2GD5/OC that I plan on buying tomorrow. But my end setup that I hope to have completed next year is:

3x 24in Asus
MSI R7850 Power Edition 2GD5/OC (Maybe Crossfire if one can't handle 3x monitors)
Asus SABERTOOTH Z77
Intel Core i5-3570K
3x Sata Hard Drives
Liquid Cooling to the CPU, for starters, but will eventually get the GPU, and motherboard on liquid.

From the research I've done it looks like the CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 will be able to handle everything I want, but it'd be nice to get confirmation on that.

Sure, the HX750 can handle even with the 2nd 7850 when you get one. & Corsair is a very trusted brand.

By the way, you do not need the PSU to power your monitor. The monitor plugs right into the AC socket.

Lol yeah. I thought the more monitors you plug into a graphics card the more power the graphics card would use. But I suppose not.

EDIT: Would I be better off going with the HX850? Or is 750 really enough? :s

I got into strong discussion when someone dispute it about the HX750 overloaded to 900W but it was quickly settled when I showed the reviews.

Corsair's are known to handled more than they are rated. In fact I powered my unlocked 720BE OC to 3.6GHz, 4x500WD Black in Raid & 2x6950 2GB from a Corsair HX620 (using vga supplied molex to 6PIN PCIe adaptors) for quite sometime with no ill effects for to my PC & to the PSU.
