I would get a HX or AX models of PSU from Corsair. I have the Corsair 750HX - it is awesome - I love the flat modular cables.

I am running 2x6970s with 4x1TB HDDS (See my system details)...and I did measure my max power load - it was coming close to 524 watts (the UPS was displaying this in realtime).

If you can - go for 850 and up. 750 is good too. I have lot of things running inside my system - and my PSU isn't still maxed out.

Good quality power supply is very important

Plus if I go with the obsidian D and white cathodes It can show off that sexy black ops 580 lol. I will know for sure what the hell im doing once I can check out the new intel cpus and boards. I really cant wait. I traded off one bad habbit for another...... My wrx sti was my first money sink but crashed that last summer thinking I was a pro driver trying to drift up a hill @ about 120mph, walked away without a scratch and decided to throw in the towel on my "race car" driving days lol. I'm getting to old for that ****...

Computers on the other hand are much safer and still cheaper (for what I need anyway) Aside from hours on demonoid and piracy I dont have much to worry about lol.... I just cant wait!!!! Its not putting the stuff together that scares me its getting it to post / bios / oc and cable management that makes me nervous lol.
haha, bit of a rev head too huh?!! i had a gsxr1000 which was pretty fun until old guy pulled out on me, didnt exactly walk away without a scratch but im still kickn!!!! yeh just dont be afraid to think about it(c/management), and find yourself a good informative build guide, print it off and have it next to you. its easy to read 3 or 4 and end up confusing yourself. pick one and stick with it. the corsairs are nice, but mines a Silverstone TJ10, i too loved the black so much i striped mine down(was internally silver) and gave her a lick of paint, like you say HUGE improvement. you got a nice set up m8, just invest in a lil knowledge, and if you make a list and check it twice(works 4 santa) everything should post fine.
