What all are you planning on buying with that 750? A whole new second rig, or are you keeping some parts from your current rig?

Good rig! Given your mobo, it seems yuo don't plan Crossfire/SLI, and in that case the 750W PC P&C is overkill. Either get the 610W version, or even an 600W OCZ GameXStream will do just fine (plenty power for any single DX10 card).

That'll free up some money for cooling and such
