I'm currently running a Thermaltake 700w PSU:

And I was wondering if it was powerful enough to run an 8800GTS (512) in SLI. I've had this power supply for over a year and its been great so far, I just want to see if it has anymore juice left in it.

I realize that my board does not support SLI and I may be upgrading to a 780i board.

Any advice would be great.

more than enough power, could get away with 620+ watts

I would guess that 700 Watt would be sufficient. I will tell you that I just tried two 8800GTS 512 G92 cards and I have a 620W supply and its on the line of not enough. I can play some older games. But when I tried COD4 my PC just shut off. So I'm saying 620W isn't enough. I'd go with 750+ if I were you, but my pockets may be deeper.

A high quality psu with 550w would be enough for 8800gts sli.

Oh yeah, I'd recommend the 680i if you can find it for cheap. Newegg deactivated it because it's so great. Unless you're aiming for 3 way sli, this is the best 2 way SLI you can get.
