600w + gtx580? - Page 2

The CP850 has cables of a good length for a P183. The problem you were probably having before was that cables weren't long enough. With the CP850 you should be able to route the cables behind the motherboard tray so that the case doesn't look as cluttered.

Yes indeed. I really had to practically stretch the cables to be able to get them to where they needed to go and the result is that they're extremely tight, I believe I could play some tunes on them if I wanted to.

But behind the motherboard? Hmm, that sounds interesting. I'll definately look into that particular model if/when I need to.

Exactly, and the CP850 comes out pretty close to the highly praised (and priced) Antec Signature units, for far less money. You are lucky in that your case is one of those that will take the CP. The only downside is that if you did get really tired of the P183, then the CP will probably have to be replaced as well if you don't stick with Antec's larger cases.

Hey, wanted to raise a follow-up question now that I actually have had it up and running without problems for a few days.

I didn't plug in my 2nd monitor when I switched cards, but I kinda miss it now. Would plugging in another monitor actually use up a lot of power from my system? It is plugged in to a wall, after all.

No, another monitor will not make a difference in your power draw.
