Probably.. they'll probably have 8950GX2 for DX10 quad SLI, then 8600GTs for mainstream.. ATI is coming out with the R600 in a couple month and theres rumors that nVIdia will be coming out with 65nm 9800GTX in the summer but they might change the name because of ATI's old 9000 series.

400w for the 8800GTS<br />
450w for the 8800GTX<br />
<br />
800w for SLI<br />
<br />
Do note that the power requirements are including an entire rig and isn't only for the cards themselves
