Get the CM 1kW, higher-end CM PSUs are of very high quality unlike their lower-end models.
Two in a row for CM! Very good! Thanks to you as well!

I'll throw a third on there if you are deciding between these two. But you'd be fine with an 850 or 900 for sli.

More convenience than restriction, and most everyone has told me I'll need more than 850 watts to power the 580s alone let alone OCing stuff.

How about this? $215 AR

I do believe this HX850 will handle both cards though:

And more expensive than the CM model, had me scratching my head a bit. Was wondering if it had some feature I wasn't seeing.

Those are at-the-wall numbers. Power draw at the PSU will be lower. If you want overkill, just get 1 kW PSU. Typically people get 1.2 kW PSUs to run quad graphics cards.

I figure overkill will be better, not that much more expensive and id rather pay an extra 20-40 just to be safe. And it will leave room to add hard drives and SSDs if I so choose.

Did you see this part?

This looks like a solid contender: Sparkle Gold 1000w

It's a killer price.
