AX 1200 is only needed for multi GPU configs only ( as in 3 x 580's or 2 x 590's), I agree with SKY on the AX 850W...

kingwing flowerpower also has some pretty well reviewed gold units (make sure it's the flowerpower ones).

just did a rough calculation using antec psu calculator...it shows 550w...
so you can buy a 650w psu or a 750w one max..no need of a 1000w unit for sure .

Maybe a little late to suggest but I would go with the AX850. Like people said you really don't need a full 1000+ watts. I have the AX850 and so far I am very pleased with it.

A decent Seasonic should do the trick. Some of the 850W seasonics surpassed a lot of 1kW psus in a lot of tests.
