You already have a 1000w PSU? and you would only need about 750w for 2x580

Just the "best" or "best for a certain budget?"

There are even more powerful PSU's out there, but those are 1KW.

How old is the PSU? it probably has a 5 year warranty.

I've not gone wrong with the coolermaster gold series yet. Don't go for the other coolermasters though they are not as good.

You don't need 1000 unless you plan on using 3 cards.

Corsair Professional Series AX850 154.99 (same as Seasonic X-Series 850w)
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...did=CA-028-CS&
Dimensions: 150mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 160mm(L)

Seasonic 860w '80 Plus Platinum' Modular Power Supply 164.99
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...did=CA-015-SS&
Dimensions: 190mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 160mm(L)

The advantage of the AX850 is it very small size for it's power output.

i7-2600K @ 4.5Ghz / Ultra-120 - Noctua NF-P12 / GA-P67A-UD4-B3
MSI/Windforce GTX 670 Sli/ Kingston HyperX 16GB / Corsair AX850 W

Ok, well there are five suggestions above (two of us have linked to the same product, I also think they are all Seasonics internals) and either of those will power a small village.

If you want to save a chunk of money on another powerful PSU - http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...23&subcat=2283

You don't need a 1000w PSU... Even 850w is slightly overkill

So you don't want the best, but the cheapest after all You get what you paid for, I suppose. The Seasonics (XFX is the same unit internally) are the gold standards (no pun) in PSUs. Particularly their Platinum series. However I'm sure you'll be fine with the OCZ.

6700K@Stock - Z170 Pro Gaming - HyperX Fury 16GB - Dark Rock 3
980ti ACX2 - Sammy 850 500GB - Tosh 3TB - M4 128GB - R5 - P2/850W
DS213+ 2x3TB WD30EFRX - FM2015 - QuickFire TK - 2420TX - 2407WFP.

With the exception that im a different person if you actually look inside its built by great wall the same people that make the sparkle psus. Ive had their psu units before and the quality is up there with the seasonics just for less money, I admit the early ones were a bit loud but they fixed that when they went to yate loon for their fans

Personally, that Seasonic 1000w would be too nice to pass up, but the XFX above is hard to beat for value.

I'm going from a single 580 to SLI 580s myself in the coming weeks (putting them under water), and plumped for an AX850 (got a great deal on one). A good 850w will be plenty for SLI 580s, and unless you're going tri-SLI at some point, will be all you'll ever need, because GPUs are always getting more power efficient.
