I recently got word from XFX that my (apparently "not bad") 8800GTX was just fine with no issues. So, now I can get my SLI system up and running again. When my XFX 8800GTX went out, I started to use my Back up system, which had a PNY 8800GTX Ultra, which died recently too. So, I replaced it with an 9800GTX, figured I could get another if the XFX 8800GTX was bad and run 9800GTXs in SLI. I ramble too much.
Okay, here is the situation, since I have this extra 9800GTX+, I was thinking of Tri-SLI.
My son's PC---- Vista Premium 32 bit XFX 780i with E8400 XFXZ 9800GTX+ SLI 4 GB 1066Mhz 1000watt Ultra PSU
Would like to use the 9800GTX that I have for Tri-SLI, does his PSU cut the mustard???
My system---- XP pro/XP Pro 64bit in dual boot Asus P5NT-WS with E6850 (680i chipset) XFX 8800GTX in SLI 8GB Corsair Antec 850 PSU
Can I run Tri-SLI with another 8800GTX?? PSU provide enough power??
Yes, my son has a better system then I do.
Any input would be appreciated.

You can't do tri Sli on a 680i board but you should have more than enough power to do it on the 780i rig.
Agreed, if you have the right MB your PSU is sufficient.
