An 8600 Ultra wont be very expensive, I was on a budget of 850 and i fit in a 7900GS for that price on a 450w Rosewill. I say he could get 500w and that would be plenty enough for the new couple of years.

E6300 w/ Arctic Freezer Pro 7 @ 3.6ghz 1.4Vcore
Antec 900 Case
EVGA 750i FTW Mobo
4x1GB of G.skill DDR2-800
2 8800GT in SLI
22" Samsung Syncmaster
1 250GB WD and 1 Seagate 7200.10 in RAID 0
Corsair 520HX 3DMark06 Score: 13900

480-500w would be more than enough for something running an 8600. it is a sound investment getting a decent power supply and that can't be stressed enough. there is no argument that a cheap generic psu can get the job done, however it is a gamble. true name brand power supplies die but that's less likely and also less likely to do harm to your system if it does occur.

I'm curious about this too. right now i've got a PCI wireless network adapter in my shopping cart...if this will take the place of that, then i'm going to drop the network card and just get this mother board...right now i've just got the P5B Deluxe...
