I already am waiting for the question to arise. Yes thats an 8800GTX with an 8800 ULTRA cooler on it
I just looked it up, 30 Amps for 1 GTX, so two would really be pushing it.

"For a normal gaming system with one video card this PSU seems to be a good choice, once you go SLI or CrossFire you should probably look at other offerings, especially since the SuperNova has both VGA connectors on the same cable, so the load isn't distributed as it should be."

Quote from the review Duckie linked to.

Even if the GTX only took 20 amps per card, it would really be pushing it.

As long as you don't try to play Crysis for 20 hours straight, it should be fine I guess with two, however personally I wouldn't risk it until that new PSU came in.

So how much of a difference did the 8800 Ultra cooler make? (other than making it crazy cool looking)

ATI gives better picture quality, nVidia gives better performance. Thats really the decision you make when you pick between them.
