  1. No. It got a Fail at HardOCP, though it did stay inside the ATX spec (barely).

    I would recommend lower wattage but higher quality. XFX Core Edition 850W or Corsair TX850M are cheaper as well as higher quality (and modular in the latter case).

  2. If your watt meter is showing 580W, I'm guessing you also have a monitor and printer (possibly more periferals) running through it (or it's broken). This will be all you need for a CrossFireX setup: Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-750 although I could find no reviews for the 750W unit, the 650W unit is well recieved and reviewed here http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Rosewill-HIVE-650-W-Power-Supply-Review/1460
    Hope it helps
