My System Specs

OK, so I have all my parts except one, the psu.

I am getting it tomorrow and have one last question that hopefully someone can provide insight.

I can get the Corsair AX750 price matched to $149.99 or
the Corsair AX850 price matched to $183.88

This build is an i7 2600K, Asus P8P67 Deluxe, 8GB Corsair vengence, eVGA GTX580, Corsair H50 and a few drives. I want it to last and will hopefully going with an SLI later. Will that 750 be good or should I go for the 850?

Thoughts? Basically is it worth the extra $35?

It is worth it if you're aiming to SLi the GTX580 with another GTX580. 850W should be enough but should consider how much power the +12V rail can support. As with the AX850 with 840W at 70A it should be able to support it.
