I'm having trouble finding an affordable power supply that could support dual GTX 580s in SLI.
I've read over and over again how important this component is to be reliable, but I haven't seen any recommendations for affordable quality.

The unit I have selected for my build so far is LEPA B850-MA 850W ATX12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

$99.99

Is that one a quality PSU? The reviews I have read say it runs well, but none of them said anything about how it will last.
The rig is built for the main purpose of gaming.

The rest of my parts I have in my cart on newgg so far are:

Planning on buying it within a couple weeks.

Got either the Samsung Syncmaster P2370HD or B2030 for moniters.
Going to buy Logitech keyboard and mouse set for $50 at Best Buy. Should have fast enough response for gaming, right?

So, would that power supply support this setup, or should I get a different one?
Should be a pretty strong machine, right? I'm pretty sure everything is compatible as well.
If anyone has any suggestions as to changes I can make it to make it better and more affordable, that'd be great.
Thanks!

cut the RAM to 4 gig , games dont use more
[ run your game in a window and open task manager if you dont believe me ]

ditch the poor performing noisy water cooling . The 2500K only needs a mid range air cooler

Buy at least a 1080P monitor , or a weaker gfx card

buy a good quality power supply . DO NOT economize on this

I prefer and use Silverstone PSU. It cost alittle more, but runs everything including my overclock extremely well.
