Yes. It is a high quality PSU and is more than good enough. Even at a massice OC on both GPU and CPU.

552W on the 12V rails is plenty for a gtx580 and overclocked CPU.

Thanks a lot for your help. Now it's to decide between a GTX 570 and GTX 580.

You could even get away with a smaller PSU and still do what you want to... just be aware that you cannot do 2x580's unless you have 800W or more (technically 750W... but not with an OC), so I would do that or go a little bigger if I were you.
OCZ, while not historically known for making good PSUs, is now actually one of the best... kinda weird, but they have been doing well for themselves lately.

2 570s with a small OC will require 750W, but for a single card you can get by with 550-600W
