Yeah, with 850w you would be on the limit for running a 590.

You chose a nice, modular power supply, it should be more than enough for a single card, just right for two :)

+1 but personally I would just Futureproof it for two cards AND moderate overclocking or upgrading with:

but I understand if you do not want to put down the extra 40 bucks. Goodluck with your build

I went ahead with the 850hx (although kcsmacker makes a good point) - thx all, great forum, seems like a good group of ppl, with minimal pissing contest
