    There are plenty of PSU's out there that will power an SLI or Crossfire system, however its pretty normal for a crossfire system to need more power.

    Myself, well I am running a 580W Hiper Modular PSU, which seems (touches wood) to be rock solid stable running my SLI rig. The power ratings that Nvidia provide are way OTT, so long as your supply has a decent amount of amperage on the 12v rails (I think it needs to be a combined 32A on the 12v rails).
