If you go SLI get something a little more powerful. Each card will require around 350 watts. Add in some hard drives, fans, etc. try something like a 750-800.

You should be able to since the max the card uses is ~350 watts and your processor around ~100 watts. Correct me if im wrong.

Yeah anything around 600w should be just fine. Make sure to look at the amps on the 12v. Thats most important. Not enough amps=no power/instability.

My plan is to get either the R600 or the 8800GTX with an E6600 unless the Q6600 isnt too expensive.

the amps are the problem. most of the PSU i see are around 18-20 amps. and the worst thing is that i'm kinde of limited in my choices because i don't have a credit card and i live in montreal/canada.

The 8800GTX(s) do not consume 350 watts each...

Anyway, NVIDIA states that the G80 core can peak at 145.5 Watts with 116.6 on average during gameplay.

Now bare with me here as we built a completely new high-end system for this test. We used a new Core 2 Duo X6800 Extreme Processor, the new nForce 680i mainboard, a Zalman cooler, DVD-rom and WD raptor driver. All that in combo with the GeForce 8800 GTX summed up to a peak load of 363 Watts and the GeForce 8800 GTS at 338 Watts
That was taken from here
