Default Video Card power draw

Hello, i am looking at getting a new power supply for my gaming rig, and i will eventually be SLIing two GTX 260's superclocked (EVGA) or two GTX 280s (EVGA) depending on the step up program offerings at the time.

I am looking at one of these following PSU's.

or

or

Last i checked the power drawn on one of the GTX 260's was about 300 watts at peak. The rest of my system is in my sig.

I recommend this PSU.

I used to run an overclocked i7 system with 2 GTX Core 216 in SLI with the 650 watt version of that PSU.
