I've been so tempted to try Corsair PSU for the past 5 years. Everyone that has one swears by them.

CUQ-1200B

I use it in my sig rig and can attest that it runs cool, quiet and has no trouble powering my SLI of GTX480's You will not be pulling 700+w out of those GTX260's unless you're going to run furmark or something. I ran a 3-way SLI of GTX260's from a Antec TP New 750w psu, granted for a short time and I didn't....

To be honest I totally forgot that it was coming from the wall.

The Corsair HX850, TX950 and NZXT Hale90 850W all have 6 PCIe power connectors. I'm sure there are others but those are off the top of my head.
another person that recommends Corsair, looks like I have to finally give them a chance.

$200 under budget and there are real nice 850watt Corsairs and Antecs.
$150 and under has a really nice XFX Blacks PSU.

A quality 750 watt would power your system fine.
Well thank you for everyone's advice. I'm going to go research this Corsair CMPSU-950TX. That 5 year warranty gives me some comfort (encase anything happens).

I wouldn't touch a raidmax PSu with a metal pole. Maybe PVC if its non-conductive. Those PSU are dangerous and bad. Avoid.

Don't go just by brand. Corsair only has a few units that are truly "high end" right now, and a lot of their competition has better prices.

Their only high end units:
HX750 (CWT DSG)
HX850 (CWT DSG)
TX950 (CWT DSG)
AX750 (SeaSonic X)
AX850 (SeaSonic X)
AX1200 (Flextronics)

Everything else they currently make is CWT PUC (HX1000), PSH (VX550), PSHII (TX, GS), DSAII (CX), and the HX650 is a SeaSonic S12E. All of those are mid-range at best, and the CX series border low-end.

The CX400, VX450, HX450, HX520, HX620, and original version of TX650 were all SeaSonic, but are discontinued and/or very difficult to find. Though most of them were mid-range too, so doesn't matter.

So far this Kingwin Lazer-LZ1000 seems to have enough PCIe cables built in, and thanks to phaedrus2129's power supply information thread, kingwin was nice enough to put how much of total amp's that'll go towards the more power hungry +12v objects (80/150 amps).

My coolmax CUG 950 has ?/90 amp's. So I wonder how much real amperage will go to the power hungry GPU's on my current GPu

So it's between Kingwin LZ-1000 vs. Raidmax RX-1000AE (yeah I know). I'm hoping this power supply will last me well into 2014 (or longer), so that's one reason why I'm targeting the 1KW range (for when I get bitten by the upgrade bug). Each of these PSU's have 6 pcie connectors (2 per gtx 260). I hate using molex to whatever adapters, so I would like the pcie connectors built in (I know it's vain..)
