If you do get a GTX 680, I recommend a 750W PSU from Corsair Enthusiast Series, XFX Core series, or Seasonic.

I was thinking about a Corsair, but what about if I decide to go SLI further down the road. Would I want something around 1K? I used the PSU calculator, and it does not have 680s on the list so I wasn't entirely certain.

No, 1KW is not needed for SLI. The new 680s will require less power than the 580s that are out now. You can run SLI with 2 580s on a 750. Do some quick reading in the PSU section here on OCN before you buy. There are some very knowledgeable guys over there that will direct you to the right unit. 750W is overkill for a one card setup, but I recommended it because of the chance of SLI.
