Tri-sli will never happen on the 9600gt. Why would nVidia allow their top of the range gaming feature to be used on low-range cards. Nonetheless, the 9600gt is a good card. But you should consider a single 8800GTS 512mb, almost as good as SLI 9600gt and you can upgrade to a sceond one later.

I have the corsair 750 running 2 9800 EVGA gtxs in my gaming system and its awesome...

You dont need more then 650watts as you'll never run Tri-Sli with 9600GT's unless there's some way to do software SLI with them

Tri-SLI with 9600GT is impossible. They come with single SLI connectors. with that build you can go with a Corsair VX550. that setup would draw around 400W max even with the proc OC'd and on full load and with an SLI setup.

update for you guys we will be going a little different way for the build, he found a barebone kit that suits him very well

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...7301&CatId=333

im gonna buy the 8800 off him for a 2nd rig plus his old case which is better suited to gaming as well as some other parts and hes going to change to the 9800 and then get another in a few months, i think this is a little better build, and with going 9800 it should give him the option for tri sli if he wants plus give himt he power he needs.

As for going with ati cards, he currently has one and doesnt like it, hes been an ati guy, but after playing on my rig with nvidia 8600 which is close to his 2600 hd he like it better and i get around 20 fps more than him so hes going to give nvidia a try.
