No. Not enough PCI-E connectors, not enough Amps on the 12v rail and not enough watts.

On Nvidia's website it states one card needs a 450W PSU. The wattage isn't really the important thing here though, that PSU doesn't provide enough amperage to run two cards. Look for a PSU that has a sufficient amount of PCI-E connectors and at least 20 amps per card on the 12v rail. So something with about 40 amps total.

Erocker is 100% correct here. If you try running this with your power supply, you will kill it and no telling whether you'll take other components with it. DON'T mess with less than adequate power supplies, and ALWAYS stick with quality brands.

+1 on this but if you can get more (20+) on 12v rail the better

erco, Yes Now I understanding this clearly. Thank you for specified detail clarification, i really really appreciated it.. :toast:

Get a Corsair, preferably a TX750, but a TX650 would do for you. Don't use a cheap power supply, it can ruin your equipment. Check this egg entry:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139005 I would look for this kind of amperage on the 12v line ect.
John, AWESOME! thank you for recommend me tht PSU. I believe that Fry has Corsair power supplies for PC. but how about Cooler Master Silent 700w? Next week, I will get one from frys which is location near where i live. ;)

The corsair tx650 has 50amps for the 12v rail. The tx750 which I have, has 60amps. Trust me, it is sufficient!

No reason not to go with the TX750W if it's only $10 more. Get it and it will serve you well for years to come.

I love my tx750, it's a beast! It should run 2 gtx285s no problem. Possibly even 2 gtx295s! Edit: it supports 4 8 pin video connectors, you can plug anything in!
