Default PSU for new GPU

I am going to be building a high end computer fairly soon, and I plan on getting a 7900 series or x1900 alongside other high end parts.

What would be a good power supply on Newegg with enough wattage and amps to satisfy the needs of the system?

I use the Enermax 620 Liberty. Antec, Fortron, Seasonic or PC Power Cooling would be fine options as well.
