Newegg.com - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-850TX 850W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

I would get the H80 or the H100.

From guru3d.com:
Quote:
GeForce GTX 580
On your average system the card requires you to have a 650 Watt power supply unit.

GeForce GTX 580 in SLI
A second card requires you to add another 250 Watts. You need a 900+ Watt power supply unit if you use it in a high-end system (1 KiloWatt recommended if you plan on any overclocking).
I would say either:
PC Power and Cooling Mk II 950w $150 ($20 MiR).
OCZ ZX 1000w $200 ($30 MiR).

It looks like you put a good chunk of change into your other components, you don't want to risk getting a "cheap" PSU and possibly frying any/all of them.
