I actually think the CX600 will do fine. But I would go for a little bigger as well. I'm a decent fan of Antec's products, so the HCG-620 is next in line (same price class, same power, little better efficiency). Also look at the Cooler Master GX650 or the Corsair TX650 (great PSU, though a little bit more expensive).

The CX600V2 has a few drawbacks over a "gaming" PSU, but otherwise are exceptional PSUs for the price. I've read reviews on JonnyGuru, Hardware Secrets, and I believe SilentPC that all liked the CX430. Now of course, there could be differences between the 430 and the 600, but I can't find a review of the 600. You have to decide for yourself if it is worth owning.

1) It is rated for 25C. I have seen reviews of the 430 version running as hot as 50C ambient temperature with no problems or drop in performance. I have a CX600V2 and have run it ambient 30C without it shutting off. I don't have the equipment to prove that it isn't losing max performance. I don't know why the rating is so low, but I will say that running over the rated temperature may lead to a shorter lifetime.

2) lack of cables. The CX600V2 doesn't have enough cables for SLI. I plan on using my CX600V2 in SLI and I'll have to get adapters. This won't affect you if you do get a 570.

3) The 12V amp limit is fairly low compared to a gaming series PSU. This is a bigger impact on SLI than the missing cables, however that isn't really an option for you with the dual 570's since they draw too much power.

I got mine for $12 after sales and rebates. It is running an i5-2500k and a 6870 and I plan on squeaking in a second 6870 a year from now. I would recommend it to anyone at that price. However, if you can get a gaming series Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, or OCZ PSU for the same price as the CX600, then I'd go for one of those instead.

EDIT: The CX600V2 is rated +12V@40A. The GTX570 takes ~19A by itself. That leaves plenty of room on the 12V and plenty of power in the entire PSU to power a CPU and most other reasonable peripherals (in other words, not running a 12 disk RAID or something crazy like that).

Thanx fro reply ,

my ques is that will Seasonic 520W S12II-520 can handle GTX 570 ????
 

For a system running with one GeForce GTX 570 graphics card, NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 550 Watt or greater power supply having a minimum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 38 Amps or greater and with at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

The power supply unit specification that is the most important is the minimum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating. It is more important than the power supply units wattage rating.

The Seasonic S12II-520 Bronze with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 40 Amps and one 6-pin and one 6+2 pin PCI-Express supplementary power connectors has no problem meeting the requirement to be able to run a system with a single GeForce GTX 570. It's a highly rated unit by the reputable power supply review sites Hardware Secrets and jonnyGURU.com.
