PSU is not weak, I just need an 8 pin power cable to plug into the second power port. You can have a single GX2 running. Had to order a 6-8 pin adapter as I stated earlier and it should take off fine.

I thought the gx2 required you to have SLI enabled?
I haven't heard anything about having to enable SLI before the card will work. I don't think you do, but I might be wrong. Anyone know anything about this?

You do have to enable it, but you don't need to have a SLI Mobo for it to let you enable it, otherwise people wouldn't buy them [9800gx2] period (some people do just hate nVidia chipsets)
