The 750's more than plenty for that rig!

The TX750W will run that setup without a hitch. Only time you might have problems is if you were to SLI it, but mind you the 285 uses less power than 280 and the TX750W can just about handle SLI'd GTX 280's, so...

Yep, TX750 is a great choice. Very solid PSU with an excellent price/performance ratio.

Hmmm, maybe I should get the TX 850 watt from corsair?
If 750 is cutting it close then 850 should be good enough wouldnt it? After all, after I do the mail in rebate it work sout to be the same price as the 750 :)

Define "just about the same price"......

If it was $10, I might consider it. Any more than that could be used to bump up something else in the system.

The 750 will be more than enough for what you want to do.

The TX 750 is fine for your current build. 2 x GTX 285s in SLI might be a little close, but should still be fine. You will push about 500W at least with the SLI you are thinking of, which the 750TX should be able to handle for prolonged periods.

However if you can get the 850 TX for the same price and don't mind the rebate, then it couldn't hurt.

When I say its just about the same price I mean that with the mail in rebate it goes to about $148.99 while the 750 watt is $146.99. I want the 850 in case I do choose to go for a second GTX 285. Instead of paying another $150 later on for an extra 100 watts.
