Ive seen 3 Different PSU's which im going to need as my last one went POP. Just need advise on which.

Corsair 850W TX Series PSU - 140mm Fan - 5 Year Warranty | Ebuyer.com - Corsair
Corsair TX 850W V2 PSU - 80plus Bronze Certified | Ebuyer.com - Corsair #2
Coolermaster Silent Pro 850W Modular PSU | Ebuyer.com - Cooler Master

Which one would be best with these specs?

AMD Phenom II 955 BE
X2 2gb 1066 DDR2 Ram
1 Samsung F3 HDD 1TB + 1 Maxtor HDD 160GB
Asus M3N-HT Mempipe Deluxe ( With Mempipes taken off )
1 Sony Optiarc DVD RW
X2 GTX 275 ( One Massivly OC'd ) - Something Like 702/25xx/15xx
Antec 900 Case with 5 Fans set to High
1 Internal Fan - Runs @ like 3.5K RPM ( I think? )

Thanks for your help and sorry to sound like an Idiot. Also if you know of a better choice under or just around £100 please advise.

Thank you

the Corsair TX- version 2 is the best of the three which you have listed; and all of the ones you have listed are very good
