I would go with getting the second 470 as well, I recently went sli with a second 480, best bang for the buck move I've made with graphics cards yet.
It's the same with two 470's, they scale very well together.

Regarding your psu, if you do get another chance to get a Seasonic, I would certainly recommend it, I've been running my 750 watt Seasonic M12D for about two years now, and it runs both 480's with no problem.
Otherwise, maybe a Corsair 850 on sale?

As for your TJ07, I've had several cases over the years, inclucding a couple Lian-Li's, but that TJ07 is just timeless. This has to be one of the best examples:

I think a couple of 470's would fit fine in that case

I note that you fold...

Just be aware that the 580 has 512 cuda cores vs the 470's 448 cores.

With a nice OC, the 580 will be pumping through the WUs in no time

I am not worthy
This isn't too bad after the rebate:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...4_TS-_-1_32___
but it's still not cheap, for a Corsair psu.
As for Seasonic, at the egg, the X750 Gold is on sale for a good price:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151087
Quite a bit more for the 850, but it's not on sale. Of course.

I went ahead and ordered the ax850. It was only a few bucks more than the hx and from what I have read the ax and the seasonic are identical and the only reason the seasonic is gold is because the fan doesn't spin until it reaches a specific temp. I have enough fans in my case that 1 psu fan won't make a difference.

Now enough talk about power supplies in the nvidia forum so time to sli that 470 !!!

I was in the same boat. I game at 2560x1440. I was dead seat on a $600 gtx 580 3gb card. I ended up Finding a Steal on 470's. So I went the 470 sli route and its great. Performace wise its better than a single 580. Minus the vram.

I'd look for a good deal on a 470, then wait around till 6 series gpus's
