I'm currently waiting for my second Evga 7800 GTX KO Acs3 to run in SLI. I currently have an Antec NeoPower 480ATX 12v v.2.0. Do I need to upgrade.....How much Would I need?

AMD Dual Core 4400+
2 GB ram
2 37 GB Raptors on Raid 0
1 Sony DVD Dru-810a
1 WD 120GB JB HD

As always your thoughts and comments are greatly appreciated!!!

I don't think you have enough for sli. You can tell when the frame rates drop. evga recommends 450 Watt for a SINGLE card. Plus the review above doesn't sound good. BTW, overclocking requires more power than stock.

Minimum of a 450 Watt power supply.
(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 18 Amp Amps.)

http://www.evga.com/products/moreinf...256-P2-N529-AX

High-End SLI PC Configuration:
Dual GeForce 7800 GTX 256MB or Dual GeForce 6800 Ultra
AMD Athlon 64 FX-57 2.8 GHz or Intel Pentium EE 840 3.2 GHz
NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 motherboard with 2GB system memory
Two HDDs in Raid 0 configuration
Two optical drives
PCI sound card
LCD at 1600x1200 resolution

High-End SLI PC*:
Minimum of 500-600W Power Supply with a minimum of +12V @ 30A for all PC components.
