    I'm thinking about buying another 8800 GTX 768mb for SLI and i was wondering if my current power supply would be able to handle it

    My current ps is a Cooler Master Real Power Pro 650W

    motherboard- Asus P5N32-E
    cpu- Intel Core Duo E6850 3 GHz


    and also, would 2 of these cards cause extreme bottlenecking?

    thank you!,

    and just to double check, as long as the gpu and memory on the video cards are the same, the SLI will work? I currently have a BFG GeForce 8800 GTX and i'm thinking of buying a XFX GeForce 8800GTX

    should i also consider more serious forms of cooling for my pc?, my current cooling system composes of 6 fans.

    yes doesn't have to be the same brand. for temporary cooling you can take the heatsink off each and apply a new squirt of Arctic Silver MX-2 or you can purchase a compatable aftermarket heatsink for both.

    ah okay, i just don't want the video cards to fry since there will be 2 working right next to each other, do you think i'd have a problem without any additional cooling?
