Edit: Oh wait I forgot about capacitor aging, so with 20% added, I am at 520W maxed out... wow now its close *sweatdrops* (lets not even talk about SLI then)
Let me know if you are able to use this ASUS Power supply calculator. http://support.asus.com/PowerSupplyC...Language=en-us

No need to get upset. I think ASUS is pretty accurate but never the less, I always asume it's better to be safe then sorry. Any underpowered rig can produce havock on a system and you don't want to discover that on one of your best day's. Now if you blow a PSU and it takes your whole system w/it as they have been known to do, then I'm sure it will be one of your worse days.

Good Luck,

Yeah I know what you mean about being safe... but man 700W and up start to cost so much! It's getting close to another 260... decisions decisions...

I picked up the power supply in my rig at fry's electronics for sale over 4 months ago for a little over $140.00. Look at it this way use your rig as is for as long as possible and when you get a very very good deal on antother identical video card then simply sell your PSU on ebay. Then upgrade to a better PSU and only pay the difference. You'll be better off and upgradable/future proof for some time to come.

I was able to OC to my heart's delight with it afterward. This was with a 6400+ BTW.
With my 9850, I am running the 2001 BIOS, but the RAM runs at 5-5-5-15, and no OC is possible. As soon as I set the SLI ready memory to enabled, the rig won't boot up. Sup with that??
I may back down to the 1802 or 1903 BIOS to see if it is more stable.

I never had any luck with the SLi setting for the ram ( That was with my 5000+ Black edition) all it did was lock up.

I Just disabled the SLi ram setting and over clocked the Old fashion way.. Worked great like that.

i have a M2N-SLi Black Edition MB (not Deluxe version) with the AMD athlon 64x2 5000 +BE CPU and 2GB OCZ platinum Memory 800DDR2. Im also running a ATI Radeon x1600Pro 512mb DDr2 GPU. I have a ULTRA X-factor 500W PS. It all running XP pro SP3. i ran CPU-Z and Orthos to get my numbers and it wont tell me everythign i need to know. mostly wont tell me my memory info.
but i do know the CPU is running at 2.6ghz. I tryed to follow the Guide that was posted and it doesnt work. i noticed that the votages in the guide are completely different from my Bios limits. i managed to get my CPU itself up to 3.10 GHz but the system wouldnt boot correctly. i wanted to chage the HT and the voltage to the CPU but the voltage wont go higher. i did a Bios update to v. 0903 from ASUS and all it did was allow me to access the HT x5 option.

if anyone out there has the same setup or similar, can you please help me. im confused at this point.

Yup, pretty much same setup. I AM VERY HAPPY with this setup. I don't think I will need any upgrades myself for a good bit!... Gotta stop spending for now...lol.

As far as the the new BIOS, 2205. I found a d/l for it, but it's not listed on Asus site, at least I can't find it. They still don't show support for the PHII's. I think this was to fix memory address problems from the last bios which I am running, the 2101. They took the 2101 off there site also. I haven't flashed to it yet, anyone try it yet???
