I'm not sure exactly what you'd need for GTX 285 SLI but this unit is awesome:

The customer reviews show a lot of people running GTX 285 SLI on that thing.
I can vouch for that PSU. I'm running GTX 280s SLI which suck even more power than the 285s, as well as a third 8400 GS on it with no problems whatsoever. Its a bit messy on the cable side though, and if you don't have a good cable management case (the Antec 900 isn't one unfortunately, perhaps you should go for the Antec 902), the cables be everywhere inside your machine. That is my main problem right now with my build.
