buying a new psu today, help plz

hey people,

im buying a new psu today and wanted to go with something modular that can power:

i7 920

asus p6t6

6gb memory

2 ssd drives

1 storage hard drive

2 gtx 275's

cd drive/burner

I would also like headroom to overclock, upgrade and add in a water loop. Would an 850w do it? I was looking at the Antec TPQ-850 Coniunous Power.

Im trying to keep the cost down but id rather get a power supply that will work, so i would like your opinions please

Id look at the Corsair 1000w or the Enermax 950w tbh matey, they are probably THE 2 best psu's around at the minute and will server upo those componants a good steady flow of power for overclocking too.

I use the Antec Quattro 1000w which ive never had a bit of bother with all the time i've had it.

Cable braid isnt up to much if looks are an issue but if its performance your after then it gets my thumbs up.
