Current Rig and PSU back up

Ive currently got a Cougar CM1000 watt power supply feeding power to my rig for about 1 year and a half. Since its a cheaper somewhat unknown brand, I'm currently looking for a Proper well known, high grade PSU to fall back on if the Cougar dies. The high grade brands i have access to are Antec, Corsair and possibly seasonic but very doubtful since i live in south africa and seasonic is almost non existant down here would have to import it which is something id rather not do . My rig is also overclocked (specs listed below) So i basically iam looking for a High grade PSU that can power my current setup and what wattage i would need.

CPU: Intel I5 2500K @ 4.5GHZ 1.3V
GFX CARD: SLI MSI N560GTX TI TF II OC EDITION @ 1.025v, 960MHZ and 4200mhz memory
RAM: G SKILL RIPJAWS X 1600mhz 2GBx4
MOBO MSI P67A GD80
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200 1TB, Western Digital Green 1TB
FANS: 5x 120mm fans, 4 LED and 1 Regular
INPUT: 2x USB devices (mouse, keyboard)

Any Help would be appreciated

    i would most likely buy this psu for that system(850watt corsair),but i think a good 750watt may do the job,im just not 100percent sure,i hope there will be more replies to this thread to answer this,i have a 650watt antec true power with a single gtx560ti and core I5 2500k

  2. thanks for the reply i am pretty sure i can order those 2 corsairs here in south africa but i just want to get other peoples opinions first on the matter
  3. If it still works what are you worried about
  4. The 750 W PSU linked earlier will do fine for your system.
  5. Thanks! so the Corsair 750w will suffice? Even when overclocking like i am at the moment? Are the Antec 750w any good? Ive heard Corsair make good PSU's but i just want a second opinion on the Antec.
  6. Any good quality 520-550 watt psu would do

    Antec's 750 PSU is also a good PSU, just as good as corsair's.

    I'm talking about either the TruePower TP-750 or the Earthwatts EA 750.
  8. thanks for the replies! Ill keep both those brands and models in mind if something happens to the cougar psu iam currently using
