I have this guy buying my computer. It's going to be my sig rig, except he's upgrading to a 7800GTX 512MB, and adding 3 more 1GB sticks of that RAM in. As you can guess, I'm a little concerned that my 450W OCZ might not be able to handle the load of 1 vid card like that, much less a future upgrade with another one.

I need a PSU that can power 2 hds, one dvd burner, 4GB sticks RAM, 2.7 GHz AMD, and 2 7800GTX 512MBs.

Perhaps this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817194004

this should also handle it just fine, but it is pretty spendy as well.

PC power and cooling would probably be the best. for a bit cheaper option I have two suggestions.

First, Seasonic S12-600

one of the new Fortron Epsilons
