As others have stated, 850w is fine for two GTX 480/580's.

I hope it's easy to sleeve. From the looks of it. It'll take me a while to sleeve that psu.

I decided on the Corsair after reading this thread and I sleeved it with MDPC sleeve.

The pins were very difficult to remove with the tool I bought from Nils. Almost thought I was going to break it several times. The sleeving was also, very difficult to remove compared to other PSUs I had worked with.

The reason why I went with the Corsair instead of the Seasonic was because the Corsair used black cables, and was $20 cheaper. I wanted all of my colors to look uniform, and the black cables helped me achieve this. I think the Corsair wins here, even today. Their return policy is amazing, and their warranty is 2 years longer. Great PSU!
