The bigger the better... Go with 750? Anyway, pick the one with 80 gold certification...

I've had great feedback on systems I've built with the fatal1ty series of products from OCZ. I'd go for that one.

I would think something like this one be perfect for your build.
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

or the modular version
Newegg.com - CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-650HX 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

If you want to stay with OCZ, I wouldnt think you'd need more than decent 650-700W.
I don't know much about thier PSUs though.

Would it be interesting if in the user cp (or somewhere on the forum), if there was a way to invite friends/family to sf forums by inputting their email address. I know a few people who are tech savvy who would do well here if they weren't already here. :)
