My setup:
MSI P6N Platinum w/ Nvidia 650i & 6gb ddr2 ram
Intel dual core e6600 OC @ 3.0 ghz
Nvidia 8800 gts 640mb
2 sata hdd
1 sata dvd-rw

Yes, I know all these are relatively old components, but I see no reason to buy a whole new comp right now.
I have been using an OCZ 700W gaming PSU, but I never had 2 gpus, so I think it was overkill.

If i want to keep my overclock abilities, what kind of PSU or what wattage rating am i looking for?
I still don't know much about PSU's so I'm looking for any type of advice/recommendations.

Thanks Much.

Shouldn't have a problem with a 700W OZC.

It is now broken.

Anything from Corsair,Antec,Seasonic,or OCZ.
A 450w psu will run your gear.
I would buy a 650W if you plan on a platform upgrade soon.
Costs effective and you can re-use it.
What's your budget?
