1st, there is like 40 power supplies in that link.
And just make sure that it has enough wattage to run your SLI config. I think that the SLI approved thing is just that nVidia will promise that the psu will be 100% compatible with SLI.

Make sure the power supply is at least a MINIMUM of 550 watts, no less.

personally i suggest 600 with dual fans, if you have two grphx cards, you don't want them under used or affected by a bad brand psu.
