I am looking a beefy power supply, need advice.

here is my current setup

Nake opteron 170@ 2700 running at 1.6 volt.
DFI lanparty Expert
2GB G skill PC4000
7900gt @ 710MHz core / 1680MHz, core is on 1.55v, mem is on default.
Raptor 74GB, 2 WD 200GB.
1 audigy sound card (upgrade to X-FI soon)
1 dvd rom ,1 dvd burner
1 fan controller
2 120mm led case fans, 2 120mm radiator fans
1 90 mm case fan, 1 80mm led fan
3 USB devices.
Pump run off the main power source.

All these are run off a top power 520 watt. I Primed both cores and ran rthdribl at the same time , I measured the 12volt line with a multi meter is 11.99v.

I plan to add in a tv tuner and can changing my water pump to the one that use power from PSU and maybe a second 7900GT, so think i need to change my powe supply .

I need you guys to recommend me a good beefy PSU. I will spend up to $270 on a power supply.

I'd look at the Toughpower, even if it is made by Thermaltake

yeah i been looking at the toughpower 750 watt, but i am a bit worry that i would turn out to be a lemon .

I would by another top power but they don't have 750watt - 850watt range. I saw the 1k top power PSU, look very nice. But i think it going to cost an arm and a leg.

Any one else recommend the toughpower series?

I wouldn't trust anything Thermaltake to power my rig. But that's just me.

I'd go this: http://www.silverstonetek.com/products-60f.htm

600W is a bit low for me, it leave me with not much head room.
