very simple question will the 580 SLI bottleneck my CPU?? i have it OC to 3.2, currently running 1 GTX 580. one more thing will my 750 Watt psu do the job with a 580 SLI combo? thanks?

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.
