As long as it's from a reputable brand, you will be fine.

Yeah, can we get a brand name, if it's some no name it might not be very reliable, something you wouldn't want. But if it's from say OCZ/Enermax/FSP Fortron group or Corsair, it will perform great.

Enermax is good too, I've had my 600 watt for over a year with no problems.

Antec and seasonic are excellent PSUs. Are you planning on running 2 cards in the future? If you are then i would get something better than a 700W
