wow, you thinking of upgrading to quad gpu?

if not, even with dual GPUs you can get away with the 750TX, which is a whole lot cheaper

That is a seriously unnecessary psu unless you are going with 3 or 4 GPUs.

For your current rig, Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling S61EPS 610W Continuous @ 40°C EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies here ya go
