Ive looked everywhere. Im just curious of the max wattage and amperage of the 8800GT and in SLI ..

Think a single 28 amp 600w Thermaltake PSU could run them in SLi without killing a rig?

+ reps!!!!!!!!!!

i think the 8800gt's use about 135-140watt each, and i know the TT PSU dont have alot of amperage to play with.

still thinking of more interesting stuff to put here

use this http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

edit: oh you wanna know about the amps okay assuming each 8800GT is 150Watts MAX thats 25amps of current but then idk how much ur CPU pulls, if you have the Q6600 at like 3.6Ghz it pulls 220Watts so you need 43amps total on all ur 12V rails for a quad at 3.6Ghz and 2 8800GT's, but remember this is 100% cpu and gpu load which i think is rare

And the CPU is an e6600

oh ok an E6600 is about 100Wats MAX so you need 20-25 amps for 2 8800;s and like 5-9 amps for the E6600 so like 28-33 i guess you're fine

is the cpu OCd? if not then you should rLLY be even closer to fine ahah
