True, but what it basically comes down to is that top-end Nvidia cards are usually a little heavy on the power draw and you should go for a 750W for SLI. For AMD/ATI stuff a 650W will almost always do for Crossfire (excluding the 2900XT, which sucked anyways).

Burning books is like burning bras; after the adrenaline rush of the symbolic moment wears off all you're left with is a pile of ashes and unsupported boobs.
