Default Upgrading PS

I am in need of a new PS. I have used around 4 to 5 diffrent PS calculators. One gave me a 330W and the highest was 568W. I am looking for a bit of advice on it.

Mobo: ASUS P5N32-SLI Deluxe LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI Intel Edition
Proc: Intel Pentium D 940 Presler 3.2GHz LGA 775 Dual-Core Processor
RAM: Four Kingston 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300)
Video: Two Nvidia Geforce 7959GTs in SLI
HD: WD Raptor 150GB 10k RPM
HD: Seagate 300GB 7200 RPM
OPD: ASUS 16X DVD±R DVD Burner With 5X DVD-RAM Write Black E-IDE/ATAPI
Sound: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic

I also have a floppy drive. My keyboard, mouse, and n52te game pad are all USB connections.

I had a 550W supply that ran the PC fine. I think it may have gotten fried after the hurricane.

I would just spend small amount of extra coin and get a Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies. Then you wont have to upgrade for a while
Asus P5Q Deluxe
OCZ Reaper 4gb (2 x 2gb)
Intel e8500 (ocing but need to learn more)
WD 640gb 7200rpm
Visiontek HD 4870
Corsair 750tx 750w
Thermaltake VH6000BWS
Vista Ultimate 64-bit
