Question What power supply do you recommend for...

What PSU do you recommend for 3 GTX 260's in SLI? I'm having a bit of trouble picking one..I was thinking a Kingwin Mach 1 800W but I don't know, just trying to get a bit of input on it. ALSO-NO BUDGET. Thanks a lot ~ Sam.

ALSO-System specs if you need-

NZXT Tempest Case
AMD Phenom II x4 940 Black Edition 3GHz
OCZ Fatal1ty DDR2 Dual Channel RAM 1066MHz(8GB of it)
Asus M3N-HT Mobo
Samsung Spinpoint 1TB HD
3 EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked Editions in TriSLI

Default Re: What power supply do you recommend for...

This is enough power...
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX 850W ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies
But it technically doesn't have enough connectors, although your cards should have come with adapters.

Or for enough pci-e connectors and more than enough power,
