I am building this rig as a trading computer to run 6 monitors via the eyefinty 6 7750 card. I am getting an estimation of 230 watts at pcpartpicker, but I don't know how reliable that number is. Also, I don't know if running 6 monitors makes a big difference. Right now I'm leaning toward a 500 watt modular corsair, any advice on this would be greatly appreciated! My build:

I assume that your thinking the Corsair CX500M power supply. That's a no good power supply because it uses low quality components and poor build quality. I suggest getting a power supply made by Seasonic. 550W is more than enough for your application.

Thanks, that looks great! I assumed all the Corsairs were high quality, which I guess is not the case.
