The 550vx should also provide enough power for sli 8800gts and is a decent bit cheaper than the 650tx I originally posted.

I asked myself a similar question shortly after my previous post.

thats the same power supply as i have and i bought it with the intention of having two cards at some point, so im almost positive youll be fine...
im not sure if you said that you had already bought it... but:
if you have, youll be fine...
if you havent, consider going with a different one, cuz that one really is better for one card, tho it will be enough for two...
consider checking out this thread for more advice...

other than that, good luck - RK

Power supply claculators are so inaccurate.

I can estimate the minimum one would need with greater accuracy than any calculator on the internet.

Case and point: The power supply calculator posted.
Asks nothing about the amount of fans, and LED or UV lights or anything about overclocked components. It doesn't even ask for the memory Speed.

So I put in my Setup and it reccomends 630 watts minimum.

When I know for certain that a Fortron 450/500 Watt PSU would power my System.

So don't use calculators.
