It won't be able to handle SLI GTX280's, it doesn't have enough amps on the 12v rails.

It needs 75-80. It gives you 62.

You would need to get a 1000W instead if you want to SLI those two GTX 280's.

I'd say get something like the Corsair 1000HX. In fact, just to be safe, you might want to get something even bigger!
