Other than that, the higher end OCZs seem to be a quality product, or you can go with the FSP epsilons. The 600w & the 700W versions are basically the same PSU as they are manufactured by fortran.

For high end SLI I wouldn't go any less than 700W of a quality PSU.

Be wary of name branded PSUs (like thermaltake etc....) they do produce some good high end kit, but often have lower end stuff as well that shouldn't be put into a rig that needs quality power.

If you want I'll PM you with a link to another forum which has a fairly good list of "tried and tested" PSUs for DFI boards.

Just remember that for PSU's the old addage of "you get what you pay for" stands the test of time, and you don't want to risk your investment in high end kit with a crappy one.
Great thank you very much....perhaps i will grab the larger PSU right now before i even fire this project up....or do you think the PSU i have now will be ok till i get the 2nd 8800 installed?

This is the one i have

...please PM with the other forum link.

Thanks again for your time...its very much apreciated
