8800GT SLI on my old PSU?
I'd like to breath some more life into my aging rig, as in my siggy.

Would like to pick up another 8800GT from FS for $100 and do the pencil mod to my board to make it sli capable.

Will my old Enermax EG-565P be able to handle this, along with my overclocked X2?

It's spec'd at 535W and 2 18A 12v rails. It has 2 PCI-E connectors, but my Galaxy has 2 connectors on it, so I'd have to run an adapter on one of the 2 conns on the galaxy card.

Second question - I can SLI with different brands right? The Galaxy is a non-reference design. I also have no SLI bridge. I suppose I could pick up one of those easy enough though.

Thanks in advance.

525W is plenty powerful enough. The Galaxy card will work with one connector fine as well. You ca SLI with different brands, but you need an SLI bridge.
