Both units are made by Seasonic and based off the same design.

As ilya said, they are basically the same PSUs.

Can't really go wrong with either of them.

And when the seasonic X850 GOLD is 149$ vs the XFX1000 PLATINUM for 179$ ? to power 2 AMD HD5970 , i7 3820, a Rampage Formula and a water cooling loop with MCP655 and 2 SSD 6x120mm fan and 2x200mm fan ? do i stick with the XFX since it is 80+Platinum and offers 1000w (probably for upgrading in the futer my Video card ) ?

Get the 1000w. You'll always have the headroom for another GPU. I have a 850w, and it's drawing 600w from the wall with a 3930k, GTX580 and WC loop. Room for another GTX580, but barely.

Yeah I was drawing 660W (ish) through a UPS with my i7 + 2 560ti cards folding. I vote for 1KW as well.
