    Hello all. I just purchased 2 MSI nvidia geforce 7900 GS PCI-E video
    cards that I intend to use in SLI mode in replacement of my current
    nvidia geforce 6800 GS PCI-E in SLI mode. the geforce 6800 GS don't
    require external power but the geforce 7900 GS cards do. My current
    power supply is a PC Power & Cooling Turbo cool 510XE 510 Watts (650
    watts total) which I think is the best power supply in it's class. It
    is not a SLI power supply, it has only one PCI-E Power connector but I
    have a molex drive wye PCI-E connector for a second card for SLI. I
    don't know whether or not my current power supply is enough. I'm eyeing
    another pc power & cooling power supply, the SILENCER® 750 EPS12V 750
    watt PSU which is a SLI certified PSU. So I need to know whether or not
    my current PSU will be suffiicient. Give me your suggestions and
    comments. Here is my current computer configuration.
