Your specs show Fractal Design Newton R2 1000W.
Are you having a problem
? The information I have found 750W will do just fine. That video card is power hungry.
Reviews on your choices might help. I use this site a lot.

Do you have a price range you are working with?

750 watts is more than "strong enough".

But I wouldn't go with that OCZ or the Coolermaster.

Look for:

XFX
Seasonic
Corsair, certain models
Antec, certain models

550 or 600 watts is enough from a quality manufacturer.

That's why I was wondering about the price range. These are more money but has been reviewed as a quality power supplies.
Amazon.com: Corsair Professional Series Gold 750-Watt 80 Plus Gold Certified High-Performance Power Supply - CMPSU-750AX: Electronics
For my research is made by Seasonic for them.
Newegg.com - SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply

You and your computer need a quality power supply.
