Great choice.

But why need 1000W? Planning TRI-SLI or Quadfire?

Even though I don't think your set up needs 1000W, it's probably a good idea to be ready for the future (even though I think we'll be seeing a stop in the power hunger increase of video cards)

The Corsair is one of the best 1kW units you can buy and usually can be found for a good price.
