Default My new computer, is it right?

# AMD AM2 DUALCORE 6000 PROCESSOR (3GB)
# ASUS M2V MOTHERBOARD
# MASSIVE 4GB DDR2 MEMORY
# 500GB HARD DISK DRIVE
# 20 X LITE-ON DUAL LAYER DVDRW

# ONBOARD LAN CARD (BROADBAND READY)
# THERMALTAKE SOPRANO CASE with 430Watt Power Supply

I'm getting this new computer off ebay cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayI...tem=190133738163
I'm getting the 8800GTS 320mb video card, all for a total of 1.5 grand.
I need to know if the 430Watt Power Supply is enough for the 8800GTS? and I would like to know if it can use SLI, I realize its a heaps good computer, but will it be able to handle itself...if you know what I mean? lol please help me here.

The price isn't that good considering it is an ebay computer. You have no idea what condition the parts are. I would just buy all the parts new from newegg for nearly the same price.

Also, that power supply will NOT be enough, it will eventually die out on you.

Did you already buy it? You'll be lucky if that PSU holds up for more than a couple months with the 8800GTS. The 8600GT would get about 1-2 years.

Did you just copy/paste this from ebay? If so there is a big red flag in the processor specs. It says that it is a 3 GB processor. May just be a typo but it sounds to me like the person who is selling it may have no idea what he's talking about.
