yea i gotcha.. but im not worried about 580 watts not being enough. im worried about the fact that im sharing 1 cable between both the videocard and the hard drive
I have the video card + one hard drive (200gb) sharing.

The other hard drive (20gb) I have is on a separate section, also connected to the neon fan.

The other is for the CD/DVD Rom drives.

Total of 3 "sections."

Yeah, nothing to worry about. It's when you try powering an FX57 San Diego/MSI SLI mobo/pair of 7800GTX's 512mb/4gb ram with a 300 watt power supply you find yourself in deep sh*t.
