So today I was playing BF2 with my new pc (amd 4000+ on an SLI mobo running 2 6800 gts with a 580w power supply) and all of a sudden my pc and everything in my room and my roomates room just shuts off completely. i had to go reset the breaker and such becuz of it.

my question is is the power supply i have enough to run this machine?? its an antec 580w and i know of greater and more expensive power supplies but i figured i had one good enough.

also, some times my computer doesnt recognize my 2nd vid card, I think this might be because when i DO get it to run in SLI mode I think the 2nd card overheats. I have checked the temp of the 2nd card and compared it to the temp of the 1st one and at one time the 1st card was about 70-74 degrees while the second card was running at like 94-96 degrees!! i have about 6 fans in my case and i dont understand whats happening, that is just my theory.

ANY HELP ON THIS WOULD BE GREAT!

The power suply is ample to run to cards, but sli is a buggy system problems are to be expected, not many people if any on here use sli so probably why no one has answered.
