Default another: will my PSU run this setup?

since it seems to power my current setup fine, but i just ordered another 8800GTS, will a 500W enermax liberty PSU be sufficient for my a new setup?

or will i need to upgrade to a 750w corsair?

EVGA 8800GTS (g92) in SLi
Razer Baraccuda ac-1 sound card
E6600 OC'd to 2.9GHZ
2X2GB Corsair XMS2 DHX RAM
1 Hard drive
2 DVD-RW

The enermax should be fine for that. Pretty sure its certified for SLI and Crossfire.

Didn't thirdshift run those?

But it is enough

a 750tx won't be necessary until you get like 2 HD 4870's
