Here's a chart I managed to find hope it helps you:

First of all, thank you for your honest comments.
Although I never SLIed anything myself, that is my plan once my current GPU can't handle games with all of eye candy features. I am not a heavy gamer but I do like to play FPS from time to time and I want my computer to support it.
Maybe it's better to re-use my old PSU and consider getting a new one when I purchase another GPU. The reason why I decided on OCZ was because I wanted to try a modular PSU that didnt cost too much money.
