Which PSU would you choose out of these?

I am going to buy a PSU tonight and here are the best I have found based on reviews and price.

Current setup so far:
i7-2600K
ASUS P8Z77-V LGA Mobo
Radeon HD 6850 (Plan to crossfire in the future but one for now)
16gb Ram (2x8gb) - Haven't bought yet but might get that tonight as well
Crucial 256GB M4 SSD

I'm leaning toward the CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 for $114.99 after $20 MIR

But there are some other options as well. I know I probably don't need 750w but I would like to have more then enough so I have the freedom to do as I wish in the future.

PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II 750W High Performance 80PLUS Silver - $73.49 after $20MIR

PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II 950W High Performance 80PLUS Silver - $107.49 after $20 MIR

Or any other suggestions for similar PSUs that are no more than $120 unless they are considerably better then these listed here.

Any help would be great. Thanks!

    Yeah, I thought about getting a 650 but unless it is considerably less money for same quality I think i would rather have some extra. Did you know of any that are similar to all of there but a 650 that is a bit less $?
  4. All those are good and i agree with amuffin said but if your dead set on getting one of those i would get HX750 although they are all good.
  5. Also I'm looking at Ram right now and I was told that I would be able to overclock beyond the 1333 max support by Sandy Bridge. So does that mean I should get 1600, 1866, or higher? I was looking at the 1600 but I wanted to make sure that was correct before I spent extra money on something if I can't get the full potential out of it.
  6. Get the Vengeance 1600MHZ memory.
  7. How about the SeaSonic M12ii 620w?

    It's great quality, will handle your 6850 CF & is modular.

    As for the memory,
    Corsair Vengeance
