To the OP:
That PSU ought to be fine. Check my sig rig. A 500w Apevia can push an 8800GTS and a pushed to the max Opteron chip, I'm sure it'll handle whatever you decide to throw at it (SINGLE current gen card wise).
that 8600 is just a temp filling in the spot for when i get my pre-ordered p45 board and my 3870 XT. i ain't sure if im going to cross fire but if i ever need to then i have the juice waiting to be used

EDIT: It called future planning

What is wrong with a single rail design? Do you really know the difference between single and multiple rail designs? The fact is, if the OCP is set correctly on the 12V rail on a single rail PSU, the PSU will turn off when the rail is overloaded. It won't take the WHOLE rig with it if something overloads the 12V rail. If it is properly built it will shut off because of the OCP just like a multi rail PSU. The key word is properly built. A cheap PSU with multiple rails and improperly or poorly implemented safety features is much less safe than a quality built single rail. And even the differences between multiple and single rail in well built PSUs are minor. Please stop spreading your ignorance about PSU design. The Coolmax have questionable quality and no amount of rails and OCPs will change that. DO NOT judge a PSU solely by the number of it's rails. There is very little benefit of having multiple rails in real world usage and added to the marginal benefit, there is increased hassle by having to load balance.

More of your ignorance. The 500W StealthXstream is a pretty nice PSU, especially for the price. I'm not denying that. But I have to question your PSU knowledge when you say that this PSU is built by PC P&C. That is flat out ignorance. They do not manufacture ANY of OCZ's PSUs. As of yet, those two companies have little to do with each other when it comes to their products produced. The only relationship they have, is that one owns the other. PC P&C and OCZ don't manufacture their own PSUs anyway. They contract it out to other companies. PC P&C gets Win-Tact and Seasonic to make theirs and OCZ gets FSP, Topower, 3Y and Impervio to make theirs. I would seriously question any PSU advice you dish out until you can show that you know something.

edit: And to the OP, you'll probably be fine with that PSU. It's not what I would consider quality, but it should hold up to the loads you are thinking of putting on it. If you get a chance in the future to get something a little better, I would recommend it.

What's the rest of hid rig like? If it's just a dual core with a HD or two, the Corsair vx450 would be fine. Even the 550 would probably be more than he needed. If you do get the Corsair, buy.com and provantage.com usually have the best prices on Corsairs.
