or dual card for that matter.
My i7 @ 4.2 & an HD5970 w/ a 25% OC is only using ~600 watts if assuming 80% efficiency on my PSU.

If you're a real stickler for neatness, then go modular. But if you don't mind a little fuss, then save yourself some coin and go with Corsair's nice 750. I think the US' Newegg has them for a nice price right now.

It pulls 750W from the wall, so the PSU is using about 600W DC.

I wouldn't put more than a 600-650W PSU in that machine unless you find a good deal. Usually the best prices are on 750W units though, so I would look there. Good models to look out for (in no particular order):

Anything from Corsair
Anything from Seasonic
Anything from Antec
XFX Black Edition 750W
Thermaltake Toughpower XT 750W or 775W
Silverstone Strider Plus 750W
