+1 for the Corsair psu. You could probably get it for a better price than $150, on sale, haha. If you decide to
go larger the 850 is great, and gives you more headroom. A psu will only draw what it needs. I agree with the others though that the 750 should be more than enough.

I recommend against the Corsair if you can afford any of the other options that have been listed. It's an outdated model and doesn't perform that great. It'll do 750W no problem, but there's much better out there. My personal preference would be the M12D.

Ok, you have to get the Seasonic M12D 750W modular now. NCIX has it on sale for $99.99. NCIX.com - Buy Seasonic M12D 750W EPS12V 20/24PIN ATX Modular Power Supply Active PFC 80PLUS 8PIN PCI-E 120MM Fan - M12D SS-750 In Canada.

Advantages of having a powerful PSU than needed is when upgrading better/power hungry parts no hassle required, but common sense would be to have more than enough.The other two a very good. Enermax, OCZ, Antec, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling are some of the top brands.

OCZ and PC Power & Cooling are not top brands.

Agreed with zero. Pc Power and cooling was good a time ago but OCZ never reach the top 10 brand in my book. Silverstone have a good one with the strider 750 series and seasonic is a never wrong ( for now at least )
