I'm sure an 850 would work, but that would be around 85-90% usage, not much room if I wanted to ever add/change anything. Also I want the PSU to be as silent as possible, so I'm striving for max, around 80% usage.

Might go for the OCZ ZX 1000...but am just weary, cause of the lack of reviews.

That's not a 80-Gold rated PSU, or else I would've considered it.

Well if you think that you can see beyond 60hz than that is your issue to worry about, but I can assure you that modern IPS panels are plenty fast for FPS gaming. You will notice server lag long before you think the monitor is holding you back.

From Wikipedia:

LCD screens with a slow response time are often unsuitable to play fast paced computer games. A worst-case response time of <16ms is sufficient for video gaming, and the difference between response times once below 10ms begin to become hard to perceive due to limitations of the human eye. [5] [6]
The pixel response time is often confused with the LCD input lag which adds another form of latency to pictures displayed by LCD screens. An LCD screen with high response time and significant input lag will not give satisfactory results when playing fast paced computer games or performing fast high accuracy operations on the screen (e.g. CAD). Manufacturers only state the response time of their displays and do not inform customers of the input lag value.

Also, here is the input lag and ghosting of a few ips panels (including my dell u2311h)

Oh no I'm sorry, I must've explained myself wrong. I didn't mean to say IPS panels are not fast enough for gaming, no not at all. I mean't to say they're not fast enough to produce a 120Hz refresh rate.

And of course you can see past 60Hz. Haven't you been in a Best Buy, Frys, or some other electronic store with the 120Hz sets playing movies at that refresh rate? even though those are not even true 120Hz displays, using the technique of interpolation. Of course many people complain its TOO fluid, making it look artificial, and to a certain extent they are right, but for gaming I find it quite perfect, and do value it a bit above IPS panels.

The difference between to standards is 2%. It is not a big difference.

yea efficiency rating really means nothing, but anyways you don't have to change anything everything you had is fine, the PSu was just overkill. I do recommend getting a GTX 580, the GTX 570 and the GTX 590 have VRm issues.
