Hi, im needing to get a new psu but i am unsure on what to get. I dont know what wattage i would need, 700w+? The cheaper the better but obviously I want to buy a trusted brand. In the future there is a possibility I will upgrade my mobo and get another 7850 to cross fire. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

specs:
Corsair c70
Asus m4a87td
Amd phenom ii x4 965
Corsair h100
Shapphire 7850 oc
2x seagate 500gb hdd
samsung 830 128gb ssd

You don't need anywhere close to 700w :)  A quality 500w unit should be able to power your rig WITH OC's!

The Corsair CX500V2 should be more than enough!

No need to go 1000w unless you plan to Quad-SLI GTX680's or HD7970's.

I got this one a few months back and its awesome so far. It is kinda big but if it fits, it's cheap, it's a good brand, plenty of power to upgrade.

As you have a excellent cpu cooler, I infer you may want to OC at some point -- so get at least a 600W PSU, then there will be some more room when you Crossfire your HD 7850.
