It's not so much about what amperage it can deliver... it's about what amperage it can deliver at a set temperature.
I mean, it doesn't even say what temperature that wattage is. It's probably 250w at standard work temp (40-50c)

I absolutely wouldn't risk it on such a bad powersupply, because if it dies, chances are pretty high of the rest of your components dies too.

Its not just a personal choice, but getting a single +12v rail is often the best way to go for any power hungry system... and with your system, at least 35A on the rail. Otherwise, if you get convinced to go with a multi-rail PSU, make sure you have at least 18A per rail, more preferrably 20-22A (22A is the max on a multi-rail PSU). One way or the other, with two big GPUs and a nice dual core CPU, there's no reason to go short on power. Even if you buy a 650W PSU, that doesn't mean you'll actually be using all that power... but if you need it, at least its there. Anyway, enough blabbering... have fun with your project computer, but be ready for a power setback, just in case things don't fit the bill. Like the old saying goes, its better to be safe than sorry...

I honestly don't see why people are so stubborn when it comes to power supplys. Ask yourself this question; would you rather cheap out on a power supply and have it destroy your entire rig so you have to buy everything again, or would you rather spend another 70 or so on a good power supply the will be guaranteed to work for years?

Never ever skimp out on a power supply.

Why on earth would you want to get SLI 8600GT's when you can just get an 8800GTS for € 303.00

Great motherboard choice by the way, it's an amazing overclocker with great features, I've used it in a couple rigs I've built

Most people know about this by now, but this is a nice little tool for figuring out what your computer will potentially need in the PSU. The only things to consider is that this is the total draw at MAX, and is the +12v/+5v/+3.3v combined, and does not speak for the drawbacks of a multi-rail PSU (you can't exceed the max power a rail can give you, or "share" between rails)... but beyond that, its still a nice starting point. My "rule of thumb" is to find a single +12v rail PSU that has a wattage output at least 150W above what this recommends. For example I have two computers and one is rated at 338W on this site, and the other at 560W... so for the first I have a 500W PSU with 34A on the single +12v rail, and then the second computer has a 750W PSU with 42A on the single +12v rail. I don't fully recommend PowerTek, who makes both my PSUs, as they've had problems for other people... I'm problem free, but these were basically a stopgap until I can save up some money for two PCP&C PSUs. So far so good...

Exactly. One 8800GTS is more powerful than two 8600GT's for CHEAPER.

Again, PSU is a piece. Get a name brand like PC P&C or Corsair or Seasonic.

Yep, that's not very good.
