I don't know what video card you have in mind, but if it's a 2nd GTX 260 you'd want to add, you could easily get a good 650W unit and still have room to overclock your CPU.
It's up to you ultimately, but 850-900W seems like a huge waste.

I prefer a bit of overkill in my PSUs, they run cooler when not running close to full power, and will thus live longer. Plus efficiency tends to peak between 60% and 80% of listed capacity.

I wrote an article on that. Any PSU I recommend will have more than enough headroom, and sizing a PSU so that your peak load matches up with 40-60% of the rating is a bad idea.
