I don't think 520W is a good idea for your build. Pay more for a power supply and you won't have to replace it later.

520w should be sufficient for your system as long as you will be using a single GPU configuration for the foreseeable future. Yes, Seasonic makes some of the best power supplies and is a huge OEM. They used to manufacture the PSUs for Corsair and PC Power & Cooling to name a few. All the top notch stuff was OEM'd by them.

I use an HX650 for my GTX 460s in SLI for reference

Unless you like the LED PSU, I'd say go with the Seasonic. I work at a computer retail store up in Canada and those GS units aren't too popular. The Seasonic unit is bronze certified (makes practically no difference but hey) and will certainly be of better quality. Corsair does have great customer support though.
