GPU:2xGTX 460 1 Gb(SLI)
Motherboard:Asrock z77 Extreme6
Ram:2x4Gb 1333Mhz

No, a 650w quality psu with four 6 pin pcie connectors is fine(, both the links i gave you have more than enough juice for your system.
The 1º one is a 750w plus silver semi-modular made by seasonic(best quality brand of psus) branded design with xfx, which is more than enough.
The 2º one is a 650w plus gold modular seasonic, which is also more than enough for your system, it can pull more than 650w.
I wouldn't go with the ocz, it has multiple +12v rails, it's worse than the seasonic x-650w and i bet it's about the same price.
