Do not go cheap on a power supply. I have repaired numerous computers, including replacing motherboards- video cards- sound cards- and hard drives, simply because the PS was not up to snuff to power the computer. Cheap PS's will have low 12 lines which will cause havoc with any hardware powered by the 12 volt line. Higher amps means everything to powering the latest hardware. Get a PS that has at least 18 amps on the 12 volt line. Heres a website on what to look for.

You might get by with this PS.

I have an Antec TruePower ( http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817103933 ) and it's getting the job done, and done quietly. I highly recommend it.

Second I highly DON'T recommend SLI. Although others differ, I believe that for the price of two cards you can get one great card that performs better than the two put together. SLi just doesn't seem worth the money. Another gig of RAM however will help in almost every computer related task.

You would be better to get one 7800GT, which is cheaper then two 6600GT's and has a better performance. Just my two cents on the matter.

Two months ago when I got my two 7800GT's, they were only $270 a piece. I'm sure you can find them cheaper then that now.
