Default PSU Supported?

I have a:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+

dual eVGA 7600GT in SLI

160GB Seagate Hard DRive

2GB Dual Channel RAM

XION II Mid-ATX Case

Lightscribe DVD/CD Burner

Asus M2N SLI Deluxe Socket AM2 nForce 570 Motherboard

Can the PSU in this case support all that? Or do I have to upgrade the PSU?

Do you not mean "How many Watt PSU" ?

I would say, yeah it will handle it, but will be loud, and will get hot. I would buy an SLI 550-600W PSU, just to be on the safe side.

Yeah, I mean "How Many Watt PSU". Does the PSU have to be SLI ready?

Id go with some name you know you can trust, like Antec, Enermax or OCZ. That way it wont fry any of those expensive components you got there.

I think the minimum for SLI is 400w needed, so to be safe i would go to 500-550watt. I am running a SLI of 7800's and my 550 watt dose the trick. I have an Ultra X2 Connect Power Supply
