    Honestly a 1000w is a bit excessive. Currently your system only draws around 550-600w under full load. If you add a second video card it will still only draw slightly over 700w. A good 750w+ unit should be ok, although I would go for an 800w+ for a little extra head room. Also Rosewill is not that good of a brand of PSU. I would recommend Antec, Corsair, Delta, Enermax, FSP, PC Power & Cooling, and SeaSonic.

    Here are some recommendations:
    Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-900 900W = $140
    PC Power and Cooling Silencer 910W = $150 ($130 after rebate)
    SeaSonic M12II 850 SS-850AM 850W = $150

    or if you insist on a 1KW+ unit these:
    FSP Group AURUM PRO 1000W = $190
    SeaSonic X-SERIES X-1050 1050W = $200

    My thoughts are the same as what dmill89 posted.

    Thx guys this really helps, I though I need to put a 1kw psu to run 2 gpus in the future but now that I know its not necessary it will save me money.
