it could work but you will need to check if your case can fit two psu's

never tried it and also cant recommend it, sell your two current units and get a single quality 1000w unit... also finding a case to do so may run a higher cost then just buying a new psu altogether

surely if you can afford the 1k for 580 sli then you can afford the 200 bucks for a big quality psu

Also dual booting two PSU's to wake up a computer is a bitch. That is why they build one big PSU to boot it all.

If you aint got the juice, have a electrician come in and drop a new wire and outlet for 20 amps or greater.

To feed a house each month could easily be changed from Filet Steak down to Steakumms three times a week to build up the cash to get it all. Especially now that you have 1000 dollar cards to feed.

Don't forget a quality APU or UPS of sufficient capacity. That utility company does not care what you have in the house should they have a bad day.
