A quick question about SLI GTX460s

I am thinking about SLI-ing two Galaxy GTX460s (768mb) to help bump FPS in BF3. I have a 500W Antec 80+ Earthwatts PSU. Will that be enough? I am also running three SATA drives, a dvd drive, i7-2600k, and a wifi card.

I wouldn't crossfire the 768 MB version if i were you, and i would get a single high end GPU such as the GTX 570.
and no, the 500W PSU is not sufficient for the SLI, the GTX 460 768 consumes 250W @ full load.

Ok one last question - if I were to get another 460 (cheaper than one 570) what would be a good PSU to shoot for? Anything under $50?

I paid $30 for the Antec EW 500 so I'm sure I can find a good deal on the 650W.
