Power rating wise yeah, it's more than enough.

You might want to look at this though - How to Pick the Right Power Supply

thats a little cheap for a 800w psu.

the psu is one thing you dont want to skimp on with a system, as if it dies, it may well take out a few other things with it.
Its not snobbery, but its best to stick to well known brands. with good aftermarket services. for example corsair psu's now come with 7 year warentys, i feel safe knowing that

Ok so the things I will need are 2x6 pin connectors?

Im really struggling to find a perfect one :/

These are my specs:
Processer : AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
Ram : 6gb
Motherboard : AS rock? M3AUCC AMD 480X crossfire + SB 600 chipset
PSU : Novatech 800w
OS : Windows 7 ultimate
Also I should add that I use my 46inch HITACHI TV screen as my monitor. ( dont know if that effects the picture or not) derp :P

Im looking for one that fits the bill perfectly, and has all the adapters that i need for a GTX580, ive been looking alot but I dont see to get very far as my knowledge about computers starts and ends at how to use the task manager :P
If someone would spare the time to find me one preferably on this site :Aria PC - Computer Hardware, Components, Monitors.. at lowest prices id be very grateful Its not that im being lazy (well it is kind of) but i have no idea how to find one that is perfect for the GTX580.
Id be willing to spend around 100 pound

a 650w will be more than fine. you can go bigger if you want more future proofing, and or crossfire/sli

850W Corsair TX850 V2 ATX2.3 SLI/Crossfire Compliant Power Supply - Aria Technology

I think I will go with this one incase I decide to sli in the future, does this have those 6 pi connectors? is that what this is : 4x PCI-E 6+2 pin ^^

One more check before I buy both

yeah will work fine. the 4x 6+2pin are what you use for the GPU, and youve got 4 so you can have 2 gpu's lol.
