How many watts for mining on two Radeon cards?

Just curious on necessary wattage I should be aiming for to power a Radeon 5870 and 280x at full load mining 24/7?

I am looking at some Gold PSU's as from what I can tell they will be the best power bang for the buck, don't really want to break the bank here, but I don't want a low quality PSU at all. Coin whine, lots of ripple, and loud fans are completely out of the picture.

Thanks!

Corsair RM 750 or RM 850 if you want a little extra.

These power supplies failed HardOCP's load tests, and are getting bad reviews across the board. Any others you'd recommend?

seasonic power supplys are highly rated.
