if you dont you can go with a cheaper mobo and lower wattage psu (650w is fine). If you want two gtx580s, youll probably want at least a 900w psu, maybe even higher.

looks pretty good, I would get one of Corsair's modular PSUs, but the TX will work just fine ;)

Edit: not going to crossfire or sli so gonna stay with 750tx

MoBo - I wouldn't buy a MoBo that didn't offer a industry standard 3 year warranty.

SSD - Vertex 2 is last generation (285 MBps) .... New Corsair Force 3'd are 500 MBps as are the Vertex 3's .... when the Corsair's hit the shelves, their 4220 price will drive down the Vertex 3 too.

Twin 560's (900 MHz versions) @ $440 (862 fps in Guru3D game test suite) are 40% faster and $60 cheaper than one 580 (616 fps). Test suite consists of GCOD-MW, Bad Company 2, Dirt 2, Far Cry 2, Metro 2033, Dawn of Discovery, Crysis Warhead. Twin 580's are 10% faster than twin 560's. The HX850 isn't certified for twin 580s'

But it will do for twin 560's

Think about the newer Corsair AX850 or the XFX Black Edition 850

Cooler - The Scythe Mugen 2 (SCMG 2100) will perform better and at a lower price.

1920x1080 with 1 GTX 580 is really enough. A GTX 570 will give 28~fps plus on max settings on that monitor, for the most demanding games. GTX 580 will be fine for the next 3~ years in performing that task (on a single 1920x1080 monitor res.)

You may want to consider the OCZ Agility 3 120 GB which is $209 after rebates on Newegg. It is $100 cheaper than the Vertex 3 and is nearly as fast.

You probably will end up overclocking if you are that serious a gamer to buy a $500 GPU.
