Go for corsair or seasonic.
Minimum 750 watts.
Or if you want some headroom for future upgrade go with 850 watts.
Always prefer one expensive card over two cards.
two cards come with extra noise , heat and instability.

Corsair HX 750 is a nice psu too, I would go with them or seasonic right now depending on preference if you can stand rebates the 750 is fairly reasonable at 90 USD.

Also may I ask why sli 660ti vs 780?



reason its because i already have one gtx 660i and i dont have the funds for a gtx 780 but it looks like im better of saving for a 780

Yes I own two HX750's the Silver and newer Gold model.
Never heard a peep out of them and they run cool too!

All rebates I have ever done are online and then mail in if that is what you are talking about.
