Nice PSU, you should go for it. I don't think there is a max AMP on the railings.

Don't think anything will happen since the requirement for the GTX is only 28AMPs.

So between that and the Seasonic which should I go for?

I have not heard of cooler master, but on the PSU guide it says they are good with high wattage models. Also it has 6 12 volt rails not 4.

Oh wow, I didn't see that last +12V5 railing, that means that CM PSU will run at 90 AMPs on 5 railings. Wow.

What does that mean? lol.

Also at most, and I mean most I would sli 8800GTS, unless the GTX drops to like 200~300 price range, and I buy one, and then buy another couple weeks latre.

I really dont like the 6 12V rails layout. I mean, if just one of the rails is overloaded, the system just wouldnt work.

IMO, the single rail power supply is the only way forward. Thats the reason that im such a fan of PC P&C. I think that the PC P&C 750W is much better value than the cooler master.
