Just get a OCZ500 watter, should handle that SLI no problem, unless you are OC the Processor and other components, you might need to go for more.

I am not familiar with that power supply. According to the specifications it should be adequate for a system with two Nvidia 8800GT video cards in SLI mode.

Here is a link to a chart which includes power consumption for two 8800GT video cards in SLI mode:

For the test which was done two years ago they used an Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 system. Please read the entire review.

So i believe it could be enough. What is your opinion? I have an overclocked E6750 to 3,4Ghz
