Default Which one?

I have found two corsair psu's and they look good to me.
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies

I need the PSU to work with my evga gtx 260 core 216 55nm graphics card.
Newegg.com - EVGA 896-P3-1255-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Which PSU works with my graphics card and which do you suggest i get?
I live in the U.S so the shipping/sales are not a problem.

Also im putting it into my HP m8430f pc.
Product informationHP Pavilion Media Center m8430f Desktop PC

Will either of those psu's work in that pc?

Thank you.

Both will work without problems. Choosing one is a matter of taste. TX750 is CWT and TX650 is Seasonic.

I agree, either one will work and it all depends on your budget.

Yup, they are both Very Reliable PSU's made from Respectable OEM's.
I'd say if you can, use the 750, just for additional Headroom for upgrades.
That is my personal Opinion, both put out quite a bit of Amps on their respective rails, enough to power what you need it for.
