You'll want a 600-watt unit unless that Tagan can run 110% load 24/7...

I know not much about power supplies, but it would seem like common sense avoid that sort of overload scenario.

It would *probably* be fine, but why tempt the gods?

I am really loving the Silverstone ST75ZF. I am running dual DDC-2's, OC'ed quad, 8800GTX, 3 HHD, 4 Sticks DDR2, DVD-RW, 2 PCI cards, a power thirsty X38, and 8 fans without a hiccup.

Best PSU I have ever run, and I payed $169 for it on NCIX
