My power supply just died on me. It was an Ultra X2 750w. Specs as follows.
nvidia nforce 680i
Q6600 processer
4 gigs of ram (4x1)
2 8800gt in SLI
2 500g hard drives

8800GT does not use much power actually. Are you upgrading any time soon?

There's a good deal on a quality PSU

High end Seasonic

and if you're going to be upgrading in future and have big monsters such as the GTX 570s, so a 750W is your best choice
NZXT Hale90
and it's the same price and efficiency as the recommended one above

Although the NZXT Hale is a good unit; the efficiency of the seasonic unit is much higher (88% / ~92%/ 87%) compared to (~85%,87%,86%) of the nzxt unit.

Both the Seasonic X and the Nzxt kingwin based units are good psu's but i'd still prefer the seasonic if you go with the high end stuff because it's seasonic... nuff said.
