Put a kill-a-watt on your outlets that your PC is attached and I bet you'll be pleasantly surprise. Ok 500W may be pushing it a bit. But 550W would be enough

From nvidia site, each GTS 250 draws a max of 150W.

4x 150W = 600W..

500 is enough?

I too am going to say 850W. 750W being borderline. 500? Nope! Not for me...
