get the 750 that I linked from buy.com it is 103 with free shipping

And that mouse i linked earlier was 42, w/ free shipping so that's 145, which is under your budget.

SLI Certified stuff is a gimmick by nVidia..

If the PSU has two PCI-e Video Connector's it will still work

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

On newegg it says sli certified... buy.com is cheaper a cheaper alternative at the moment.

Don't bother with two HD 4850's unless you have a really big monitor (24'' +) but even then one HD 4850 is enough

If you haven't purchased your power supply yet and want to get something cheaper than the 550vx then go for a 450vx which will still run a single 4850.
