My System Specs

I may need to do a 2nd one too, but thats ok because the case is setup to take 2 PSUs.

Wouldn't you be better off with a single rail system? Something like the Corsair AX1200? Well in your case two of them? I know I can run my two 580s off of my AX850 so you should easily be able to do two cards onto each psu and not be worrying about the amps on your 12v.
