I agree, the 600W power supply should be plenty. If you are overly worried, just look for a 650W. The extra 50W should absolutely make sure you are fine.

Watts are not the most important thing when choosing a psu, the amps on the 12v rails are more important. The model you selected is pretty far down the list in the power supply guide and is in the section for systems with one high end video card. I recommend the Corsair 650tx, it will handle sli 8800gts without a problem.

Yeah, the 650tx is a little overkill but it is cheaper than the 520hx. The system requirements for one 8800gts recommend a psu with at least 28A total on the 12v rails so I would defiantly recommend something better than the Ultra originally posted.
