the one sora has is a modular one, its an ultra tho, and its not a high wattage, and probably can't handle that 7950gx2

Newegg.com - Open Box: ASUS EN7950GX2/2PHT/1G GeForce 7950GX2 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Dual GPU HDCP Video Card - OEM

but are u crazy???

No they're not. They're very stable. I have a 580W one powering my rig (AMD 6000+ at 3.4GHZ, 8800 GTS 320MB card, 3 x hard drives, watercooling)
