If your intention ro use SLI in the near future, you can choose the Seasonic X series 850W.

Quote from the review

"The Seasonic X-series 850W offers a great combination of features, aesthetics, quality, versatility, and performance. If you appreciate quality design and construction, then the X-850W will not disappoint you. "
Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.

Corsair HX 1000, is great psu

I agree, if you want to use two graphic cards later on, better to have a bigger PSU... and the Corsair AX1200 is good one too... 🙂

Until you're using only one graphic card, even if you want OC the 3770k, a much smaller PSU will be enough too... around 700-750W... - the thing is that with the H80 you won't be able to OC too high, temps will stop you...
