My PC Specs are:

CPU Cooler: XIGMATEK 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler

MotherBoard: EVGA NVYDIA nForce 750i SLI Motherboard

Ram: OCZ Reaper HPC Edition DDR2 800Mhz (2X2GB) 4GB

Graphics Card(s): 2X XFX Geforce 8800 GTS 512MB

So which PSU should i get?

650TX is all you need. You could also be fine with a 520hx/vx

for you though i woudl recommend a PC Power and Cooling 610w
Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling S61EPS 610W Continuous @ 40°C EPS12V Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, cUL, CE, CB, TUV - Power Supplies

its cheaper then both the 650tx and the 520hx/vx and is more then suitable for your build.

The 650tx has a single 52A 12v rail vs the Silencer 610's single 49A 12v rail so the 650tx is more powerful.

Basically go with whichever is the cheapest.
corsair 550vx
corsair 520hx(modular)
silencer 610

They will all be more than enough to run 2 GTS 512s.

Although if you havent bought yet, you might look at getting the dfi DK x48 and 2 4850s instead of the GTS sli
