I did look at the specs. a single 8800, and an E6300 will run on 500W fine. just as long as the PSU isn't a cheapo one.
Nvidia actually recommends a 450W PSU for the 8800's (GTX included)
I used to run my 7900 GT at 1.68V (stock is 1.2V), heavily overclocked, on a 450W PSU.
And actually, all PCI-E 16X cards can run at 8X bandwith.
the slot isn't different; it just uses half the lanes.
