When it comes to upgrading, at that point I also won't need a 2600k, a full ATX case, with a motherboard and memory. At that point I can spend $400 on a beefier PSU and another card for SLI.

So, right now I am thinking 600w should be more than enough for the current setup, and I should be good OC'ing to about 4Ghz with the stock cooler.

Can we all agree on one thing for once here guys?

I guarantee that it has enough power until you want to add a 2nd GTX 570 (that is, if you buy one GTX 570). However, I have a doubt about the 600W StealthXStream II being able to power a system with a single GTX 590 in it. In that thread linked earlier where Phaedrus219 said a 650W is enough to power a system with one GTX 590 in it, the thread starter has the 650W Antec TruePower New which is a high quality unit with much more power on the +12V than the 600W StealthXStream II.

TwoCables you know.... i was thinking about that thing you said about a 650w not being enough for 2 570s and i have come to the conclusion that you are wrong.... i don't know if you could overclock them on a 650w but a 650w will befinitely run 2 570s... i don't have anything against you personally

Nah, don't worry about it.

Do you have any data to back this up?

Take his advice or go with whatever the heck u want. In the end, it's your money, your build.

Is the 800W EliteXStream really a quality unit?

Well I'm not going to try and use the 600w with two 570's. All I want it to do is run the above config with an eventual 570. So the processor is 95w, a bit more if you OC. What are the estimates for the other parts?

And the BIGGEST question of them all:

Will powering on the system (even just once) cause any damage if it is not enough power? If I can power it on and run tests/benchmarks, that should indicate very quickly shouldn't it?

With a quality power supply, insufficient power would result in a safe and harmless instant shut down. With a low quality power supply (I'm not referring to the StealthXStream 2 here), it could result in damage to one or more components.

Anyway, just get a quality 750W power supply, and then you will be guaranteed that you can add a 2nd GTX 570 any time you want. There isn't much need to spend time carefully calculating it.

there is a guy that says his 2 570s run fine on his 650w psu, and on that same page it says that guru3d review you used had a 578w rating for a full system and the two gtx 570s draw 410w by themselves so i think that 650w should be fine for a system.... i could look some more if you would like, but my day is wasted as it is finding just that

Folding will be out of the question for him. I also think that he should be careful if he wants to put some load on his CPU at the same time as the graphics cards.

Earlier in this thread (post #22), I posted the review that Guru3D did, and I broke it down like this:

If their system's power supply pulled 578W from the wall during load, and if the efficiency were 85% during that power draw, than that would mean the system pulled about 490W from the power supply. Now this is with the CPU at 0% load. What would happen if the CPU were at 100% load at the same time? What would happen if both the CPU and the graphics cards were overclocked?

That is why I am recommending a quality 750W power supply.
