I second that. I have the 650tx and it's silent and works great.
I'm not a whiz with power supplies, but I haven't had any problems with the 650tx so far.

hmm...thanks, but I think ill stick with single 9800GTX...im sure if I run 2 of those (eventually) not much will outperform that (from the current 8 or 9 series)

well ok it is ur decision but i just read that it is just 20-50mhz overclocked from the 8800GTS and it cost $100 extra so it is better two get 2 than 1 that are almost similar

you wont see any increase in performance between them in stock

just get one 8800gts 512 (g92) and oc it...it will perform almost as good as a 9800gtx (the diff is not really worth mentioning it's so small).
