I would get the Antec TruePower 2.0 550 Watt to be safe but it should work fine with 450

I've been reading a lot over at evga on the 7900's and the KO is one of them that people are having problems with. I'm starting to doubt if what I was recommended will work out right together. Not sure if the PSU with the Sonata II will give all that the KO needs, considering the PSU has 12V rails of 15 and 17, while the KO is recommended to have 20a.

Thats why you never go with a stock psu, newer video cards are more demanding and you might as well pay the price early for quality components that won't change (i.e. case/psu). You even said you were interested in SLI... meaning you might as well by an sli psu listed on nvidia's site.

The ko was a good recomendation for a graphics card and no need to worry because its backed by such a great warrenty anyway.

Well, I wouldn't consider the psu I have with the Sonata II stock, plus I just got some help from the boards over at evga and got confirmation that the psu WILL work fine with the card giving it enough power. I realized that I was looking at things wrong.
