I can get a 650 Watt 80 plus gold rated PSU for the same price as a 750 Watt 80 plus bronze rated PSU. Would 750 be best on the safe side or would 650 be plenty? Which do you recommend?

I would go 750W so you can Sli in the future.

Not in my horizon any time soon, but future-proofing for SLI is definitely a consideration
