Why would you want to run SLI....SLi is never worth it's performance in cost. However I would say yes it could run SLI 7800GT's.

I still think I'm leaning towards the Seasonic, but thank you for your information. Also if you can tell me where/how to overclock my C2D, I would be happy.

I'm pretty sure the XClio Goodpower is manufactuered by Channel Well, which is a rather good manufactuer.

WEll, I'm just going to go go with the Seasonic, after hearing nothing bad about them.

Then I will buy the EVGA 7800GS unless the 8800GTS 320 comes down in price

You're not planning on buying the 7800gs, are you? There are better video cards for the money.

7950gt's are a waste, either get that great deal on the 7900gs, or get the x1950xt, which destroys the 7950gt and, it cheaper from what i've heard

Newegg.com - EVGA 256-P2-N761-AR GeForce 8600GTS 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail


That ^^ cost $149.99 after MIR and it is faster than 8600GT XXX
