Would 1000 watts support 2 590s in SLI?

I'm pretty sure even a good 850watt would be ok with 2x GTX580's

As for the OP, a Corsair HX750 and forget about it.

EDIT: I too thought it said GTX580

an corsair hx 1000w or a seasonic 1000w
I don't think Seasonic makes 1000W PSUs lol.

850W Max IIRC.

To the OP, the answer is very simple really:

1) If you plan to SLI: 1000W+
2) If not: anything over 750W.

Brands: Seasonic, Corsair, Antec and XFX.

A good 650w is fine for one GTX 590, and a good 900-1000w is fine for two.

Do you guys know when the price of the GTX 590 classified will drop down to the $729.99 MSRP on the EVGA site?

Its like $850 on amazon now, which seems ridiculous.

I'd skip the 590, personally. I always recommend a quality power supply. Nvidia skimped on their own power supplies (the VRMs on the GTX590s). Not much point investing in a quality system PSU if the manufacturer of your components won't do the same. Heck, by Nvidia's reasoning you could run that system on a Leadman LP-8867, if you used drivers to throttle your components before they went over 200W.
