Hi! :) 

I planned to build this RIG;

Intel Core i5 2500 3.3GHz
ASUS Sabertooth Z77
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB
EVGA GTX 580 1.5GB Superclocked
Corsair H80 liquid CPU cooler
+ 200mm x4 LED fans

So, my question; Can i get the intended performance of this PC if I use a;
Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650M (Modular) power supply? :??:  Because, nVidia mentions that the minimum system power required is 600W, and this is only little higher than required...

OR

What other minimum CORSAIR PSU i should go for? :??: 

Thanks you guys!

For a system using a single GeForce GTX 560 graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 450 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 24 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

For a system using two GeForce GTX 560 graphics cards in 2-way SLI mode NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 600 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 37 Amps or greater and that has at least four 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most important factor.

The Corsair Enthusiast Series Modular TX650M, with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 54 Amps and with two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is more than sufficient to power your system configuration with a single GeForce GTX 560. It is also more than sufficient electrically to power your system configuration with two GeForce GTX 560 in 2-way SLI mode although it is deficient by two PCI Express supplementary power connectors so you'll have to use a couple of dual 4-pin Molex peripheral to 6-pin PCIe adapters that are usually included in the graphics card package.
