I'm doubtful you could run 'em in SLI, though you could run one easily.

Ya, Ricanflow did for his Folding rig, mind you he had e1200 on it...

Low TDP and low power consumption, depending on your CPU I wouldn't advise it
I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:

Overclocking would also be very iffy.

Rican does it. So yes. I wouldn't do it, but apparently it works.

It would work, but with a medium dual core and any ocing it would be a little scarry. maybe go up a step on an earthwatts (i think the next one is 480, or something like that)

Invest in a quality 500 Watt ~ PSU. Believe me, it is well worth the money.
