A good 800w psu should do it. How much do you want to spend? How about the Corsair 850tx.

I ran it through and got over a kilowatt XD Probably a bit more than you'll need, but I added lots of extras, just in case. I have no clue what you're planning. Jebus101's suggestion sounds about right.

The silverstone strider plus's are great.
I'd look at the
Silverstone strider plus 750w,850w
The xfx 750 and 850w psus.
Seasonic x750 or 70 (corsair ax750,850).
The Antec Truepower new 750w or the HCG 750.
I am pretty sure a 750w would be more then enough.

Edit: Thanks shub on the HCG, I had it named wrong.

Definitely avoid the Corsair TX units. A good 750W unit would be perfectly adequate for your planned system.
I suggest either of the XFX 750W units, the Antec TP-750, the Antec HCG-750, a SeaSonic SS-750HT, and since you're in Australia you should be able to find a Super Flower Golden Green 800W.

Thanks, i'm definitely swaying toward 800w to 850w
What's wrong with the corsair TX's ?

It's old and isn't really worth it imo. 750w is more then enough for you.
