Dude for your PS don't go the OCZ rout. Corsair, Seasonic, Silverstone or XFX would be better choices.

Since I put my order in today I think it'll take a couple days to process. Gonna wait it out til Wed to see if NCIX will have some new PSUs on their deals of the week or something. If so i'll just do an exchange it when I go pick up my order

If not how does this look (I don't know much about PSUs at all)

For a dual gpu card setup that power supply will need a molex to pci-e pin adapter, where as buying a corsair tx750 for an extra $20 will natively give u 4x 8 pci-e pin connectors over the silverstone's 1 8pin and 2 6pin connectors.

When looking at power supply units, you are not only looking at how much power you need but also what type of connectors and how many of them they provide for your intended use.

Here is the link to the corsair's unit...

also the better units can stably put out their rated wattage. say you get a corsair 600 watts? itll do it on the 12v rail, or very close. ocz 700 watts wont do anywhere near what the name scheme implies, on the 12v rail.

theyre not bad, but you can get much better

That's a good-quality PSU and would be a much better choice than either of the OCZ models you linked above.
