800). MSI K9N Diamond 590 SLI MCP Motherboard. And a Antec Trio 650 watt, 3 12v railing arrangment. Will

I wouldn't have thought so - the PSU should handle it, and the rest looks fine  Thumbs Up

PSU may not be large enough if you have multiple hard drives, CD/DVD, and CD/DVD burners, and use two video cards..


Heres a link to a PSU calculator: http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

Agreed Ted, I would have said the same if he was planning on using two of those 8800's - with just the one he will be fine  Thumbs Up
