im now planning to buy the ASUS GTX 570, would it still require an 800W PSU? some said it's better to have a 650W PSU in my build.

what are you on about? the GTX580 does not pull 370W.
PCI-e can on take 300W. the card pulls about 245W.

the PSU he has is fine.

YOU DO NOT NEED 800W JUST TO RUN A SINGLE GTX570!


don't listen to him. he thinks a GTX580 pulls 370W.
