Thank you for your help. This will definitely be my next purchase. I recently bought a 680 4gb, so it will have to wait a little bit. Whats the main advantage to more wattage and what exactly makes a good PSU? I am eventually going to get another 680 and run SLI; would 550w be enough?

A quality-made 550W PSU would be enough, but that's a 650W PSU I linked. :)

 

There's really no advantage to having more wattage of it's not being used. It's a little bit like hard drive space, or memory: it's just a capacity.

 

I don't know yet how to describe in my own words what makes a good PSU, but I do know that it comes down to the quality of the internal components and how well they're put together in the PSU. There's a lot of reading about PSUs that can be done here alone:

That's the best answer I can give, I think.
