don't tell me that a 650w can't handle a gtx 690 with z77 overclocked system, because i have seen it, lots of times. also a 450w psu can handle a gtx 680 overclocked z77 mini itx system, seen it lots of times too.

a 500w PSU DEDICATED to power a gtx 590 alone (not the entire system) is more than good enough. the mobo, cpu, hdd, fans are powered by another 500w psu. total of two psu.

yup it have a dual rail 12v.

dual rail means that your PSU's total 12v power output is splitted into two, the 8 pin CPU cable is connected at only one rail, means that it can only draw half of the max power, the 6 PCI cable is connected at another 12v rail.

the 590 uses TWO 8 pin connector right? why don't you use both the CPU cable and the PCI cable? that way your gpu will draw 50% power at the first rail using the CPU cable, and another 50% power at the second rail using the PCI cable?

i hope you understand what i'm trying to say, i'm not good at english.
