yea i made a HUGE mistake and skipped out on my powersupply a while back, and now im not sure if i need a new one. (i hear it has a bad rep and likes to die) will it suffice? or am i doomed to buy a new PSU? if so, which?

A good 450W with 26A on 12v rails for 9600GT or 8800GT so that PSU should be fine. Because PSU isn't just to produce power but also protect your inventory, I would prefer to get good another PSU if you are looking for a new PSU. See if you can find good price on Corsair and Antec etc. They are pretty cheap in US.

I hear its a really good 650 tho, I dunno I wouldn't skimp on the PSU...

Why are you wanting to go SLI? Maybe I can talk you out of it lol....
