If it doesn't cost much more, you should consider the 560ti for better performance.

You can probably power your sig rig with your new card with a 600W PSU, look for reliable manufacturers like Corsair or Seasonic. People around here tend to bash OCZ's PSU's but I've never had any problems.

Step one:
Visit scan.co.uk (Cheaper)

Step two:
Purchase GTX 560/560Ti (Depends if you game enough)

I can power my 580 off 600w no problems.
Get the 560. Better performance.

There's a nice Corsair PSU (good 2 year warranty also) for £54.

Why are you replacing your PSU? I think a good 520 watt might even be able to Xfire 6870's

But if not, here's another:

It's 500w, but I filled this out to the specs I know of (I guess 2x2GB, 2HDD's and 1 CD RW + 1 DVD RW drive also, that was a 560Ti)

It came to 360W or so.. so 500w should be cool.

He's telling the truth.. I don't see much point in the PSU upgrade at the moment..
