I'm thinking about getting a Nvidia GTX 285 with plans to upgrade to dual 285s in the future. My basic plans is to get an I7 processor, a newer mobo and a single GTX 285 then later as prices drop I'll upgrade the processor and add an additional GTX 285 to run in SLI. Any thought on if this is a good idea?

If it is, what kind of PSU power am I gonna need.

850w is fine 1000w is ok and 750 with dual will work but not as effiecent with dual cards

then again, almost nobody upgrades and everyone says they will - the 285 will rip it -- go 750w
