I'm getting the EVGA SC gtx 580 soon. ( and I was wondering if I would have any problems running it with a TX650 watt corsair PSU (

I just want to make sure before I buy it.

Oh yeah, and what do you guys think from coming from an ATI 5870 to a GTX 580?

You should be fine since that card requires a minimum of 600 watts. The TX650 Corsair is an excellent card.

I'm still using a 5870, so someone else will have to answer that question.

According to the newegg pages for those, the 580 needs 42A on the +12v rail(s), and that PSU has 52A on a single rail, so you are set. Plus its Corsair so even less reason to worry.

As for the 5870 vs 580, I was lookin at some benchies from the initial 580 review here at Tom's, and the 580 looks to be, on average, 30 to 40% faster.
