Ok so the computer I am building needs to be able to play game on there highest settings and I need it to render quickly with sony vgas and live stream to YouTube in high quality without any trouble. I have put together some of the parts I am looking at here. I just want to know if it can do what I said above and whether or not the motherboard could support 2 GTX 580s. Also if any of you have any knowledge about the BlackMagic intensity pro I would like to know if this rig could run it.

CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100 92.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Motherboard: MSI P67A-GD80 (B3) ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

This really depends upon your budget and what specific game you are planning on streaming.

I think in general, a GPU as high-end as the GTX 580 is overpriced exponentially because of how new it is.
I would go with 1x GTX 570 (~$200 less), and a 1000 Watt PSU (~$200 less).
Later, if you feel that the one GTX 570 isn't doing it for you, then add a second one.

Also, 1000 Watt PSU should be perfectly fine for an i7-2600K overclocked + 2x GTX 570s.
If you don't believe me, use this wattage calculator:

i7-2600K overclocked pulls less than 200 Watts.
A single GTX 570 pulls less than 220 Watts.
MOBO+RAM+HDD+ODD+etc... pull less than 200 Watts.
200 + 220 + 220 + 200 = 840 Watts.

To let you know, those power calculators are not accurate, so i don't usually rely on them.

Th build isn't to bad but the case should be changed to this which has more room and better airflow. I have 2 6950 and the performance is par with 2 GTX570 which i get a solid 60FPS and over for all my games which is great. So i would stick with the single GTX580 and see how that goes. The GTX580 is not new, it was released on the 9th of November 2010.
