I would suggest one of these Zero point modules , they are able to supply a lot of power.

If there's anything about a computer you don't want to put a price limit on, it's a power supply.

My original PC Power & Cooling 750W silencer is now on it's 5th motherboard. I don't think it's model even been made in a year and a half.

I've heard great things about Corsair power supplies.

Though I don't think you can go wrong with Corsair, PCP&C, Silverstone or Seasonic.

My OCZ (made by FSP) has been flawless as well, but I don't think their reputation is in the same class as the others.

I have a corsair and love it, and I also have an enermax that I have had for many years. Both are great, but I have heard that enermax qc has gone down in the last few years.
