    +1 to the Corsair. Corsair make VERY reliable parts that will last you for a long time. And their power supplies and RAM are the best in the business.

    650W is more than fine. Just check out how many amps can be supplied on the 12V line, as graphics cards rely heavily on this. Check on the Nvidia website what the amperage requirement is for one 9800gtx and just multiply by two to get how much ameperage your PSU will need to supply.
  5. I'd go with this corsair 750w. This psu has a good deal on it right now too. Here's a review of the 9800gtx in SLI.
