Ugh, it's disgusting. Could you not find something a bit more tasteful? And it doesn't have four 6 pin PCI-E connectors. You could use the molex to 6 pin, but that would not be recommended. Even a good quality 500W unit could run 9800GTX SLI if you can find one with four connectors.

Here's one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817163109
I don't know if you can use Newegg but TD don't have much of a selection of PSUs.

i didn't know that...so the Watts aren't the biggest issue here then? and why wouldn't using the Molex 6pin be a good idea?

the 9800GTX SLI requires at least 30A on the +12V rail.
