NZXT Hale82 650W @ £74, Seasonic SS-650AT internally, very good mainstream unit.
BeQuiet E9 580W @ £89, FSP Aurum inside(will return Platinum efficiency at 230v), inaudible, best customer support in Europe.
Cougar GX 600W @ £79, very good Gold unit, excellent value, very quiet and cool, can easily run two 6870s on a SandyB platform so I imagine it won't have issues with two 7870s on an IvyB platform either.
PCP&C Silencer MKIII 600W @ £69, Seasonic S12II Bronze inside, solid mainstream unit.

here is the newer fsp aurum 550 for £85

Antec 520W Neo Eco Modular for £51 or the 620 for £64

Excellent, thanks guys. I'm going to give these a look over and as I'm in no rush I prefer to do my research before buying. With so many brands and models it appeared a daunting task but you've help to narrow my focus so thanks a lot smile.gif That Tomshardware article looks like a particularly useful resource!

@obsidian86: That list is huge - so many PSUs!!!!!

I'll probably pop back when I've narrowed it down for final confirmation
