So after much research im settled on a Seasonic X1050. It's definitely the best choice for this build; leaving room for SLI if I choose to do so. Paid 199.99 @ New Egg at the time of this post. I'll update with a review.

Thought I'd update my psu thread here and say I couldn't be happier with the performance of the Seasonic X1050. I was able to OC my rig to 5ghz and run 8 spinning hard disk drives, gtx780, 3ssd's, game blaster, H80i, 4 schticks of ram my asrock extreme 9 x79 mobo and several peripherals including 3 external hdds. Seasonic=precision PSU

Good choice. i have the XFX 1000 watt platinum which is made by Seasonic and it is an excellent PSU.
