Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling Silencer PPCS910 910W ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Active PFC Power Supply Compatible with Core i7 - Power Supplies
this would be a better option, it's better to have the 12v amperage over one powerful rail then over multiple rails.

this would even be fine for your gtx275's
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX 850W ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

For the most part Cm psu's are not that great, i think it was only the real power pro that were decent psu's.

I have the Cooler Master 1250 Real Power Pro and it's been good to me for close to 2 years now. For your system both of those you have linked should work good if you get a good one

I would rather go for something with a larger combined 12v amperage, because there is more chance of it overloading on the rails when the amperage supplied is not enough, although this probably won't happen, i think it depends on how the psu mechanics are designed, the source all the 12v rails are from.
