If you want to save $ and get the same performance OP, the 7950 will be better cuz only a 650W is needed and the 7950 is cheaper.

Or if you don't mind waiting a few months, you could get a GTX 660 which will have similar performance to a 580 and be much cheaper.

Or you could wait until they actually release and not use just assumptions they used. If we know NVIDIA, it will be like every other gen.

A decent 620 - 650w psu will easily push a single gtx 580. You want a 950+w psu to push two of those cards in SLI.
