Looks like each
8800 GTX requires two
6 pin pci-e plugs coming off the power supply. So in order to run two 8800 GTX GPUs in sli I have to have a power supply with FOUR 6 pin plugs. The only one I've found so far is almost $300 bucks.
Now, I realize that you can plug two 4 pin molex into one 6 pin pci-e plugs but that means each card would eat up four 4 pin molex plugs.
Here is the list of system components I'm planning to buy this coming Friday (I already have the hard drives in the following list)
Q6600 processor (G0 stepping)
Asus Striker Extreme MB
4gig Crucial ddr2 ram
ZALMAN CNPS9700 (cpu cooling fan)
2x 74gig 10k rpm raptors (sata)
1x 320gig WD Hard drive (sata)
1x 200gig Hard drive (sata)
2x BFG 8800 GTX vid cards (One this Friday, one two paychecks down the line)
1x Fatal1ty sound card
COOLER MASTER CM 690 (Case)
1x logitech g15 keyboard (already have)
Can someone tell me with some kind of certainty if the following powersupply will support that system?
Thanks for lending my your time and brain power.
