go ahead and try to play on a system like that.
If Nvidia only recommends a 450w PSU for a single 8800gtx, then a 850w PSU should not be needed for them in SLI, after all, the 2nd card is never used to it's full potential(in turn full power consumption). Sure they said 850w would be needed for them in SLI but I think they inflated the numbers to ensure compatibility. That's my guess, only 9-10 more days until we all know for sure.
