my oc'ed 920 with (2) 480 GTX's and (3) SSD's and a std. HDD plus (2) opticals and more than a dozen fans eats just over 1000 watts at full load. I'm thinking (2) giant power supplies are in order.

Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE ST1500 1500W ATX 12V 2.3 & EPS 12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Active PFC Power Supply

On LN2 4 480s and 2 hex Xeons only required a 1200 and an 850.

The title says "Best", to me that means overdoing everything and planning ahead for the next great technology. 3000 watts will do for a little while.

Best to me means hardware performance, not overdone ridiculously. Id rather have a couple of 80plus Gold or something which is "best" in PSU. Idk.
