So what would be the approximate ratings for 2 of these cards in sli? Thanks for your help.

The 9800 GTX SLI, which draws more than yours, draws 228W or 19A for the cards only. that leaves 33A for the rest of the system. As I said, your cards should draw less than that, or similar with the OC but I doubt it, so you are in good shape. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
