  1. 900+ watts power supply is recommended for two GTX580's in SLI. In order to avoid CPU bottlenecking with that system you need to be playing at high resolutions and/or multiple monitors. Also, you need to be sure that your motherboard is SLI certified. Just because it has two PCIex16 lanes does not mean that it is SLI certified.
