Yes, he will. Especially if it's an in-case like that, the odds are he will need one more powerful.

You need more juice(a bigger PSU) an 8800 gts still consumes more power than my blowdryer

Lol, 700W is so overkill. Its funny how people still get such overpowered PSUs, even Dual 8800GTXs don't need that.

Even though you are probably right, I'd still rather pay the extra money just to be safe. Because I'm sure everyone here doesn't really feel like taking a risk on a low wattage PSU that works for 2 hours, fries their entire system, and then has to shell out the money for a new system.

Thanks but no thanks.

Learn about PSUs, and then tell me what's safe.

A good 500W PSU (good isn't just determined by the name of the company that makes it) is enough to run a Dual 8800GTX system.
