It actually might be.. question though, is there 4 pci-e cables? whats the Amps?

I run 260-216 sli on a 700W Silverstone psu. I run FaH 24/7 and have no gliching.

I did breifly have my 520hx running them with aDAPTERS, BUT THAT WAS JUST FOR FUN...

I'm guessing you're looking at the OCZ StealthXStream 600W PSU? It's SLI ready, and should be able to handle 2 260's. It has 4 12V rails each at 18amps. You'll ned 6-pin to 4pin molex adapters, so wire management may be a pain.

Yes, you'll do just fine with it.

Yha, you should be fine... I'd suggest 1 pci-e and 1 adapter per card.
