Yes itll run, but that psu only has 2 12v rails, and its a ****** brand. It would be much safer to use something like corsair, antec, silverstone...etc.

Look at these, both are about the same as far as specs. I have the antec in my rig.

Newegg.com - Antec NeoHE 500 ATX12V 500W Power Supply 100Vac to 240Vac +/- 10% UL, CUL, TUV, CE, FCC, CCC, CB, C-tick - Retail

theres no difference between the Corsair 520 and 620hx, the 620hx is a bit louder, but both have same amperage on the12v rail, its just the 620hx has more amperage on the 3.3v Rails which isn't vital at all..

^^Agreed, no need to spend more money if it isnt neccesary. Im sure both the psu's i posted can do two 8800gt's in sli and not break a sweat, thanks to the amperage 12v rails. Two 8800gts's might be pushing it though.
