Two 6600GTs only requires 350watt PSU, and SLi takes more power.... Although, for best performance, get an AMD64. BTW, I like you name!

AMD ZEN, why would u tell the guy to get an AGP mobo?
amdguy305, if you start rebuilding i would definitaley go pci-e, it has no advantages over AGP now, but soon enough it will, and therefore you wont wanna buy everything new again come 1-1.5yrs from now...

Default a quick q

hey guys i have a quick question. does the ati x800 pro need like a 500 watt power supply to run? or would it be ok under a 350 watt and still keep perfect stable conditions. i heard that the 6800 was more power hungry than the x800, and please correct me if i am wrong. i have a 350 watt right now, and i am planning on getting an x800 xt plat. oh yeah and one more thing.. im not too great on motherboards and what will fit and what wont fit, but please let me know if the newer cards like the BFG 6800 and the x800 with fit into this board. it was recently replaced, because the whole board fried so it is a fairly new board. any help would be awsome, thanks!!
