Default New PSU

Im looking at a new PSU. i have a Hiper 525w one at the moment but i plan to start overclocking soon and want a new PSU that can really handle the load and not cause any unstability. any recommendations? my specs are in my sig

EDIT: im also thinking about getting a CROSSFIRE x1900xt configuration in the future so its got to handle that as well.
