PSU Needed, 850 vs 1000?

I understand that with my setup a 850w PSU should be more than enough, however, I have plans of overclocking my CPU and GPU's. I also plan on getting more fans later on. (A few 120mm)

Here's my setup:

Intel 4790k (OC to between 4.6-4.9)
Corsair h100i
HyperX Fury 4x4gb RAM
Gigabyte GA-Z97X-GAMING 5
Samsung 850 Evo 250gb
WD 1TB HDD 7200rpm
Corsair Obsidian 750D
2x Nvidia GTX 980 Ti - Gigabyte G1 edition (OC between 1380-1480mhz)

Thank you, help would be greatly appreciated!
Also if anyone has any recommendations as the what brand/model PSU to get would also be great. Im leading towards EVGA G2 or Corsair RM series.

If you're going to be overclocking the CPU and both GPUs, I'd definitely want a 900w or higher unit. Since there are few 900w units, a 1000w unit would be advisable. 850w covers 980TI SLI, but not overclocking as well and not factoring in the demands of an overclocked CPU. This is probably your best option on a high quality unit of sufficient capacity:
