750W is more than enough for your computer.

Just read this if you don't believe me:

If that is the case, then I would certainly pick a great 850w unit instead of a shady 1000w unit.

I'll look into these AX/HX850.

The mushkin deal appears to me as a $170 deal :/
The reason it shuts off is becuase you PSU sucks monkey ballz. PSU wattage shouldn't matter any more that PSU quality and ratings. Get a AX Or HX 850 and you should be fine.

Either you have some other issue, or your current psu is junk. There is no way that any of the mentioned 750-850w psu's won't power your rig. I'm running two GTX 460's on a "fully" oc'ed 2600k (amongst other things, of course) and my 750 is plenty. If you want more comfort, 850watts then but that is definitely plenty. You'll be fine

Well this PSU is nearly 5 years old too. It certainly wasn't junk when I bought it in 2006. Today though, it's probably junk :/

It's probably not giving anywhere near that now it's 5 years old. 5 years is a good lifespan for a PSU, it's old, retire it (and sell it on Ebay)...
A new 750 or 850 is what you need.

From what I understand the TX series is fully wired (not modular). HX is a modular version of TX and AX is modular but has higher efficiency than the HX.

You will defiantly not need 1000 watts even, 850 is even tons of overkill imo even for crossfire.
