Default SLI with 9600gts help!

Hi, I currently have an Asus EN9600gt Silent 512m Gfx card. I am considering Sli with another 9600gt card and have a Sli motherboard (Asus P5N-D)
The only problem I believe I face is my power supply only being 500w, (silverstone SST-ST50F). Will this be enough power to run two 9600gt's as well as all my other components,(listed below)? I was also wondering whats the best gfx card to SLI with my 9600gt, I hear you need to stay in the same family.

Here is my power supply details:
http://www.silverstonetek.com/produc...st50f&area=usa

Intel core quad Q6700 @2.66
4gb ddr2- @800
Asus P5N-D
Asus EN9600gt Silent 512m
Silverstone 500w (SST-ST50F)

Cheers.

I think you might need a 750w or 700. SLI requires more wat usage.
