Hi all. I'm replacing my power supply (my old one, an ultra x4 850w, is dying after only a year) and looking for advice. I'm looking at a Corsair 1050HX Professional Modular 1050w. My system specs are:

CPU:i5-750 @2.66 ghz
Motherboard:EVGA p55sli
GFX: 2 EVGA GTS 450s (1gb) in sli
RAM: 8gb Corsair XMS3 @ 1333mhz
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500gb
Audio: Microsoft Life Chat LX-3000
OS:Windows7 Home Premium 64bit

Is the 1050HX a good unit? Any other suggestions?

Anything made by SeaSonic (SeaSonic-XFX-Corsair) is top quality.
