Only problems I've found with that is that no one seems to be selling dual-head PCI-E adapter cables, so you'll need to buy two. On top of that, the adapters seem to need 2 x Molex for 1 x PCI-E, such as in this product. So you would need 4 Molex connectors lying around, which hopefully wouldn't be a problem for a person who can afford Dual 8800GTXs.
