Most will say the HX650. I've not personally used Corsair, but they're known for quality.

I'd also say do not get the StealthXStream as they have rather high failures and DOAs. Instead, consider the ModXStream from OCZ. Those would be good choices.

*edit: And for the record, you really don't need more than 600W for this setup. 1000 is WAY overkill, and will just be wasting power, and thus, money. I'd say try to stay under 750, even for future proofing unless you get a hella efficient model (read: 80+ silver or gold)

If these were my only choices, then I would most definitely get the AX750 because internally it is the SeaSonic X-750 which is basically the best 750W power supply on the market.

However, the 750W TruePower New is a great choice, and so is the HX650 (yep, the HX650 would be fine too).

It's the highest quality power supply in the entire list. It's such a high quality unit that I always affectionately call it "overkill on quality" (it crushes my little HX650).
