If/when I get a video card it will probably be a one card system. I'll save using multiple cards for a heavier duty system when my kids are older and I have time to start doing more with a gaming-type system.
Then you don't need to get a PSU with a capacity that's any larger than 450W - as long as it's a good quality-made one. At least not until you make the heavier duty system when your children are older.
One great example is the 450W Rosewill Capstone Modular Cable Version Series for $69.99 with "free shipping available"
