Unhappy What PSU for gaming pc ?

Hi
I have everything for my new computer but there was one thing i overlooked the PSU! I forgot about it and now i don't really know which one to get ! I am looking for one that has SATA connectors and 24 pin connector for new motherboards. It would have to be powerful as i will have two ATI cards in crossfire mode and have everything in the computer overclocked and i will also have watercooling.So what do i need?

PC Power & Cooling are the best if you can afford them.

I find that this is how the order goes especially if you don't have a limit to money.

PC power and cooling
OCZ
Antec
Enermax
forton
vantec

just IMO.

I want a PSU that has the best performence for the money. I would say my budget is to about 50 or if it's really good maybe a bit more!
