Also note that this PSU is supposed to be replaced with a new HX650. ;)

Just tuck your extra cables neatly into a spare 5.25" Bay...no big deal!

It should be able to handle just a single GTX 295 though, right? I'll be getting in a GTX 295, and I have an extra 9800 GT laying around that I wouldn't mind putting it to some use. But I guess adding in the extra GT with this PSU would be pushing it.

Really don't want to upgrade this PSU unless I have to.
Cannot understand this...a $600 GPU and an additional PhysX Card but want to "cheap out" on the "heart" of the whole thing.......where is Enaberif???

Do as Sky recommended...get a decent PSU for that set-up!

I hope both of you guys realize you are responding to an OLD post back in Feb.

If you read my recent update post above yours, I upgraded to the HX850 with an i7 setup a while ago. By the way, as mentioned, that "cheap" HX620 handled both those cards for 6 months flawlessly!
