:hello: 

I need some help picking out a powersupply. I need to know what is the best power supply on the market. There are alot out there but I need it to be extreme! I am hooking it u to a 4g's build so it's kinda important that it's of really high quality! Any suggestions? Needs to be 1000 watts or above!

The Corsair AX 1200 and the Antec HCP 1200 are the best KW level or above PSU's currently available.. Definitely select from one of those two if you are building up a rig with a couple of GTX 580's (both overclocked) and a nice water cooled setup to cool your highly overclocked CPU..

I think there are better looking and performing cases out there for less money (Fortress FT02, Lian Li PC-V1020B, Corsair Obsidian 800D, Cubitek Magic-Cube B211 Aluminium Modular) than that, also would you not be better off and see more gains using just 2 gtx580 in SLI rather than quad gtx560 ?

Also whats your monitor going to be? I hope for this rig its going to be a 30" 2560x1660 Dell.
