hiya i have a 600watt psu but its not sli certified should i buy a sli certified one? also i have a point of view 8800gt, i cant find a brand new point of view 8800gt graphics card anywhere anymore on any uk website, apart from a overclocked edition, would this work with my standard 8800gt? thanks.

As long as you have 2 cards that are the 'same' (meaning, both 8800GT's) Then yes it will work.

and i would say 600Watts is fine for SLI.

As long as it is the same model of card it will work.
Like 8800gt and 8800gt.
The brand doesnt have to be the same.
Neither do the clock speeds.
Just install the card with the lowest clock speeds in the primary slot.

what is your 12v amps?

if you have only 1 PCI-e

then you can use this it comes with the 8800GT in the box

Before you do ANYTHING, what brand/model is your PSU?

You would need at least +12V - 46A

If ya look on the side of your PSU it should have a diagram with these settings...

I run mine on a non SLI certified 650W..

What is the make and model of yours I can find out if you dont see the specs
