The unit in your sig can easily handle two 570s, and 1000W is overkill for two 580s, just so you know.
As for those two Cooler Master units... well obviously the Gold version is more efficient, for once, but the Enhance platform the Gold is built on is more prone to mediocre ripple suppression, whereas the Silent Pro M is better at that. On the other hand, voltage regulation is so-so on the Silent Pro M.

For the price, I'd suggest http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817800002 personally.

I looked at the one you suggested but i cant find on amazon.co.uk or ebuyer.com which are the two websites i like to use, so you are saying that they both have disadvantages but the Gold is more efficent?

The Enhance platform used on the Silent Pro Gold isn't prone to ripple, Cooler Master just chose to cut corners there.

Silverstone's Strider Gold PSU's are based on the same design from Enhance. And on similar wattage units, present FAR less ripple.

For the price I would pick up a Silent Pro M; simmiler all around unit that's got a longer warranty.
