the seasonic is a great choice, it gives the highest efficiency and runs a lot cooler and can take a lot of heat too.

or you can just go for which ever is cheaper, all your choices are great PSUs

the corsair TX750W would be a great choice, but make sure you have a case that can hide all those long and extra cables, thats goes to any other good decent PSU out there .

If you don't it might get ugly
