a corsair tx850 would be sufficient to give you some headroom for overclocks....cpu and gpus...no problem thumb.gifhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139022 affordable, on sale-ish after rebate and.....solid, can handle quite a bit....I know...I have one, any questions just feel free to drop me a line....happy hunting! tongue.gif

For now, I recommend the 850W SeaSonic M12II for $139.17 after shipping, then $124.17 after the $15 rebate:

This is a quality-made modular PSU and it costs less than similar non-modular PSUs!

I was just looking into how many PCI-E connections you'll need and from what I see you be running two 8 pin and two 6 pin PCI-Express connectors between to 2 cards. The PSU I looked up has four 6+2 PCI-E so you should be good unless someone thinks you'll need to up the overall power to more than 750 80 Plus Gold smile.gif

I love supporting non-big name brands when they do stuff right, in most cases it ends up better due to more interest and quality-orientation to attract customers and in-tern benefit the company, as long as it continues to uphold that principle of quality.
Thanks 2 cables.

He's overclocking the 580s, so he might:

 

With two GTX 580s under full load in their test system, their PSU pulled 719W from the wall outlet.  Their CPU was idling, so I have to add about 150W for an overclocked CPU these days.  That makes the PSU pulling 869W from the wall outlet which means if the PSU is 85% efficient while pulling 869W from the wall outlet, then the system is pulling 738W from the PSU.  Now, a quality-made 750W power supply would have no problem with this, especially while gaming because the gaming power draw would be closer to about 650-675W, maybe 700W at times for the most demanding video games.  However, I can't help but wonder what overclocking the 580s would do to this power draw calculation, so I can only feel comfortable recommending 850W power supplies right now unless someone can correct me.

You're welcome, but unfortunately SeaSonic is one of two brands I'm trying to recommend less frequently because of this:

 

http://www.overclock.net/t/1177728/the-problem-with-a-single-psu-brand

 

Corsair is the other one, but they're also the worst offender in my eyes.  I hate recommending their PSUs now because it's like, "Dude, give the little guys a chance so that we don't have a future where all we have are SeaSonic and Corsair PSUs".  I don't know about the rest of the world, but I like the variety we have right now.

ive had alot of issues with seasonic where I work....we ended up trashing over a hundred psus but they were kinda crappy, they went in office computers, actually urinalysis puters lol....but I guess find what works right for you and do a little homework/research try http://www.tomshardware.com/t/power-supplies/ then you can learn about wave lengths/power draw of psus you may be interested in...then make a educated decision...but 850w no less is the best starting pad to your victory of this dilema heh thumb.gif

I'm more of an Antec guy myself but they tend to cost more and I was trying to keep him between $100 - $150.

And I do agree with the 850 suggestions. It's weird but as I was posting my recommendation 850 was flashing before my eyes.lol

If you have the money I would probably go with something like this if we're going by brands that usually stand for greatness smile.gif
Like the other PSU it has all the connections you'll need, it's well made and it's 80 Plus Gold
