I always use Seasonic PSU's when possible, they are reliable, power effectient (80+), and silent.

Many brand like CoolerMaster, Corsair, etc. use rebranded Seasonic PSU's (Among others), but it is often pretty difficult to determine where a PSU exactly comes from ...

They are however, not the cheapest.

Welcome to bleepingcomputer!

Both of those cases are excellent. I'd say go with which ever one you think has the best design and looks!

If you're going to eventually do SLI, you're going to want a pretty beefy power supply. A system with two GTX 280's with a Corei7 is around 600 watts of power. You'll probably want at least a 750 watt power supply though. Something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817139006 would be a good choice.

Great case choices, I like the Cosmos myself. It looks nice and appears to be easier to work in. If you're thinking of getting two GTX 280's, just get a GTX 295 since it is two GPU's on one card. That means, if you really want to go crazy, you can get another card and have quad SLI. As for PSU's, I suggest Corsair, OCZ, Silverstone, and PC Power PSU's.
