if your planning on building a new rig in the summer, i'd hold off on getting a new psu until its necessary. keep an eye on the corsair 520 (which has been one of the best psu's to get for the last 3 years), see if they have a special or something in the next month or 2.

and i found some insight. the 9800gt, is nearly identical to the 8800gt, just uses a touch less power. 108w under max load. that is 9a at 12v. so 2 of them gives you 18 amps on 12v. if your cpu is rated at 125w, (phenom II quad) 10.5 more amps, so we are at 29 amps minimum on the 12v rail will be sufficient. which is 348w on the 12v rail (or rails). those are the 12v devices.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/Sys ... 62-10.html

is a link where tomshardware ran an overclocked 8800gt SLI system on a 400w psu.
just note that it is a silverstone psu, which, they are one of the top companies for psu's (corsair and antec are up there too). a quality psu that has ample 12v power for your cpu and gpu(s) will power your system.

I don't care about modular or non-modular. I had a modular ABS Tagan 700 watt PSU in my old computer and by the time I was done plugging everything up, the only thing I wasn't using was the 2nd PCI-E cable.

personally i don't like modular. just one more thing in the power line to go wrong, or for inneficiencies to occur, or voltage drops... etc. and unless you are buying a 1000w psu that looks like 5 squids glued together.... my opinion is modular is a marketing idea to sell the product for 25% more wile incuring a cost that is 1 or 2% more tops. i like it if i was selling you the stuff.
