For sli gtx 560, minimum would definitely be 650W.
For sli gtx 550Ti, you could go lower than 650W.

I was under the impression that the Ti was more energy efficient, I guess that was correct.

For your budget I would go with the Corsair 650 that brinks suggested.

If you don't mind paying more now but getting some cash back with a rebate, this OCZ 750w has a single 12v rail and it will have enough power for any future upgrades you may end up wanting ($99.99 w/ free shipping, $74.99 after a rebate - expires 9/15/2011).

That is the one I had my eye on I was also considering the Antec EarthWatts that Patonb suggested. Then again I will not be ordering for about 2 weeks so I'm keeping my eyes on deals on main brands.

EDIT: My price range is generally limited I'm paying for most with SwagBucks GCs for Amazon lol.

Are you referring to a power cable? If so that is not an issue I have tons of cables and random components AKA junk drawer.

I've never heard them called that, that's quite a clear name for them. We call them 'kettle leads'.

I usually call them power cables, but with a power supply, theres like 8 power cables technically.
