That corsair 450w is rated at 33 amps on the 12v rail; you might be ok. Also check newegg's cyber Monday specials which should be out at midnight.

You can't run SLi on that board! You need an nvidia chipset to run SLi. That board has the AMD 780G chipset. I guess you could crossfire on that board though, but of course you would need to go for some Radeon cards. As for the PSU, it's enough for your build with one card, but to run two mid range cards in SLi or Crossfire it's not enough.

^+1. I'm surprised no one noticed it before you.

The 450VX can easily run a single 9800GTX+. +1 for the PC Power & Cooling 610 for being more future proof.

@OP: What resolution do you plan to play at?
