PSU for Dual Crossfire 6970s?

I recently bought a second Powercolor Radeon HD 6970 and when installing discovered my current PSU didn't have enough connectors to accommodate the second card. Recommendations for a good, Crossfire ready/certified power supply would be much appreciated.

CPU: Intel i7-2600 @3.4GHz 8M LGA

CPU Fan: Asetek 510LC 120MM watercooling

HDD: 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 3.5"

RAM: 16GB DDR3 PC3 PC1333

Mobo: Gigabyte Z68AP-D3 Intel Z68 Crossfire DDR3 SATA3 USB3

PSU: XtremeGear 800w (I realize now XtremeGear is an awful brand.)

GPU: 2 Powercolor Radeon HD 6970s, 2-way Crossfire

don't cheap out on the psu, this one has 4x 8pin (6+2) and its a tier 1 psu with a 10 year warranty, which should las you for other builds, the least I would go with a GOOD psu would be 750 watts. That extreme geat must be tier 5 (stay away from it)
