Default PSU Question

I've saved enough money to purchase two 7900GTX's and was wondering what is the right psu to power these with no problem. I really don't want to fork out another $400 to buy the 850 or 1000 watt psus so which one below that? Or do I have to get one that powerful?

The OCZ one looks good. PC Power and Cooling's expensive. IS it worth that much?

Hey what about the Silverstone Zeus? I heard they are pretty good and when I get my new build, I will be putting it in.

i don't think that 550watt antec is strong enough.. it'll probably meet the minimum... i could be wrong.. buy why risk it..

the OCZ one looks good to me as well.
