For around £79 ($156 USD) you can get an OCZ GameXStream 700w PSU. I have one and it is amazing. No regrets buying it.

Here's a newegg link to it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341002

Yes, I am aware that you live in the UK, but I don't know of any reputable shops located across seas. I gave you the link for more info about it.

A good 400W PSU should be fine for your current rig. With future upgrade in mind, get a good 500w psu such as Corsair 550vx.

I know 700w is a little overkill, but you have some extra leg-room for future upgrades.

It's always good to have a good-quality PSU, even if your system isn't the latest and greatest. I would rather have something else die first, then my PSU. If a PSU dies, it can take other things down with it.

It is very depending what 2x GPU you will have in the future, a good 550W PSU with 30A should be fine for 2x GT, 2xG92 GTS or one GX2. Remember. what manufacturers recommend is a full loaded rig with GPU. Of course, Corsair 620HX is well qualified in this case but if you don't need modular cable, for the same amount of money, you can get a Corsair 650/750TX PSU.
