haha. Right now, sure. But later on, when 7800gt's are rock bottom cheap compared to today and games are using 512mb of vram, you'll want to upgrade your pc. I would be smart and prepare for sli. Better get it now then have to wait till later... you never know.

I have almost the exact same stuff as you, except I have a wireless internet USB thing as well, and I run on 400 watt power; seems to work fine.

Quite honestly, if you don't plan on getting SLI with this computer or any major power consuming upgrades, you should be fine as I have experienced no problems.
