PSU suggestions?

I hear that my video card is power hungry and I should plan for that. Along with overclocking, is this PSU big enough? Am I wasting money because it's too big? Thoughts and opinions are appreciated!

that psu is too much for a single gpu and bare minimum for crossfire. also, it's just not one of the better 750 watt psus out there for the price.
