    Corsair or PC Power & Cooling should be your choices for a multi GPU config.I have seen many rigs with those Power supplies and all the high ends contain them.

    I'm running Tri-Xfire with a 850watt power supply myself. Like others I would recommend 1K unit for Quad-Xfire setups to be safe even if you have extra power to spare...

    As for recommendations Enermax or Antec are my picks...

    An 850w will be more than enough.

    That PSU will run your setup just fine. Silverstone produces extremely high quality, very stable PSUs. Period...
