They will all last so which is cheapest? Although CM has a bad reputation in PSU's that is one of the exceptions.

What are your systm specs? 800-850W is way overkill for any rig except SLI/CF of very high-end GPUs. A good 500-550W PSU is sufficient for any single-GPU system; you can likely save a good bit of money by getting a less powerful PSU.

Those three in order of preference:
1. CM Silent Pro M 850
2. Corsair GS800
I wouldn't use the Xigmatek. Your build requires a 650W PSU with at least 48A on the 12V rails and four 75W 6-pin PCIe power connectors. PSUs normally don't have four PCIe power connectors until 700-750W and I always buy a PSU that comes standard with the connectors required for a build so I don't have to use adapters. The Silent Pro M850 is electrically sufficient for your build and has enough connectors. The GS800 is electrically sufficient and has enough connectors. If you can get the Corsair TX750 for less, then that is a good option. Another option is the XFX Core 650W; electrically sufficient and has enough connectors. Do you have a site where we can look at available PSUs and make recommendations?

I've got a Cooler Master Silent Pro 850W. It's a good solid unit, and handles everything I throw at it. It has steller reviews and it's been in a number of high end builds recently. It's definitely a step up from where CM has been in PSU's for the past few years.

There aren't any good reviews of the FSP Epsilon 80+ 900W. FSP has historically been a quality OEM PSU mfr. They ran into some design/quality issues with the Everest and Blue Storm series of PSUs around 2008-2009. Their current top-tier PSU, the Aurum Gold series, have some issues in poor 12V/3.3V voltage regulation and miserable crossload performance - not something I would expect for a high-end PSU especially with excellent competing products on the market. The 500 and 600W Epsilon 80+ PSUs are well reviewed however I would go with the GS800/Silent Pro unless the FSP was significantly cheaper.
