I got two options:

Antec EA650
or
Corsair TX650 V2

Considering that i'm going to apply one of them in a rig like this one :

Core i5 2500
8 GB DDR3
1 500 GB HDD
HD 7750 OC ( Possible future upgrade to a HD 7770 CF )
Intel DH67VR ( Future upgrade to a GA-B75 D3H )

Both PSUs are overkill and I don't understand your graphics choice. I see no reason to get a 7750 with an i5 and 7770 Crossfire makes no sense as an upgrade because a 7870 would perform similarly, yet can be had cheaper and with double the frame buffer per GPU all without the quirks of dual-GPU gaming.

Not considering price into the equation, the Corsair is the best of the two.

And I agree that Crossfiring 7770's doesn't make much sense.

Well yeah, i already heard that crossfiring 7770's isnt the best choice... But that would be next year, im just thinking on upgrading my PSU for now, then the motherboard and then the graphics card, and that would be something with the 7770s price range

I'd say to upgrade the motherboard before the PSU if possible, but that's me.

The biggest problem with 7770 Crossfire is the frame buffer of only 1GB. The only 7770 2GB is way overpriced and two 7770 1GB cards in CF will need to have the quality kept low enough to not have a memory capacity bottle-neck. A lot of games need more than 1GB in 1080p with settings relevant for 7770 CF's performance.

You're best choice would be to save up for a 7870 or at least a 7850.
