  1. good? or cheap?
    it looks like you have some top of the line parts so have a flexible budget.

    Therefore if you want a top-of-the line PSU to match I would recommend Seasonic X or platinum series.
  2. Seasonic is an excellent choice. Depending on budget, Corsair and Antec are good alternatives.

    Before dropping coins on a sound card, you might want to test the 7.1 on the MB you selected.

    Hi - how much do u want to spend on the PSU? cmichael & raytseng are giving u the right brands,
    so your PSU budget is needed to narrow it down.

    No budget money is not an issue at the moment.

    Then Def consider the Seasonic X850 Gold I linked. You don't need that much wattage, but your sys
    has a lot of upper end components and this sort of fits the sys from that respect. Or you could go platinum
    which nets to about $20 more than the gold after calc rebates, shipping, etc.
