Default good sli power supply?

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...874746&CatId=0

My evga geforce 7600gt doesn't need power from the power supply cause it gets it from the mobo i guess.

I am planning on getting a second 7600gt and want to know if that power supply will be good enough?

thank you. Does that mean if i get that 600 watt it will use 600 watts or will it use however much it needs to? I know i won't be using 600 watts but it will be close.

that OCZ PSU is actually a good one. Like i said, if it was y SLI setup, i wouldnt go with a cheap one, i probably wouldnt even spend less than 120$ USD.....but if you are really on a budget i would go with the one i poted originally or the OCZ ^^
