    If you give us the amount of amps on the 12 volt rail, it might work.

    also a link to these Powersupplies would be cool. My first response is get a better known PS to build on.
    (the 8800GT takes quite a bit more power than the 8600 series)

    the sky king is junk (12A on the 12V rail for a 650watt PS is awful)

    what country are you in ?

    Its gonna be hard to help as the Powersupply is the backbone to a good comp (a good one will support it but a bad one will cause all kinds of problems)

    I would recommend a better PS first, if that is not possible than to work with what you have I would sell the 8600GT and buy a pair of these to run in crossfire

    They draw very little power (shouldnt force your Power Supply as much as an 8800GT)

    or a single 3850. Since your motherboard is Crossfire compatible I would look to ATI cards instead of Nvidia.

    Many thanks for the advices MK, but another problem is i don't have many option... ATI is almost unavilable, in one week there will be some good products around so i'll check'em out and definitely get backe to you for consultation...

    Since none of us have ever used the Raptorx PS we cant say for sure. The 9600GT is a very good card and requires less power than the others so if a 4850 (replacement for the 3850 and a very good card too) is out of the question than the 9600GT is a winner.
