More about what build
  1. To me that PSU seems very heavy for this setup. unless you plan on later doing tripple or quad SLI on the 580, i really don't see the need for it. A solid corsair psu in the 800-850w range would do nicely, even if you plan on a two-card SLI later on. Other than that, it looks pretty solid to me. :)
  2. alright than ill probably be using the CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX850 instead
