i am using http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817148008 as my powersupply... it works fine for me but, i don't use SLi, so i wouldn't know if this is suitable at all. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103931 this one looks as if it's alright with SLi.

well yeh i might get just a cheaper antec one because it seems they always ahve good reviews but maybe no sli yet...i may never sli ne ways so ill just go look for one around 40 dollars...i post a link when i find one and someone tell me what u think...thx

edit: ok now i found this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103935

now the smart power is the cheapest type of antec...but it is still very good and has great rating plus pin 20+4...sata connectors....and pcie graphics card connectors and 400watt's should be fine for a gaming computer or should i maybe go higher watts??? thx
