you can zoom in on that picture for the details. easy to read at max zoom but i dont understand it lol

I got the computer for myself on the 21st for my birthday and come to find out my brother bought me the card without him knowing i already got one so im gonna run them in SLI. I just play WoW, WAR, Dawn of War 2 and Champions Online and i dont overclock it or anything if that helps at all.

 
Basically two 295GTX in SLI can consume a total of about 430w of power by themselves under load. Then you have the rest of your system.

In generally, any power supply that comes with a PC is usually crap. It would be helpful if they provided the make and model of the PSU. In any case, for SLI or Crossfire I would replace the PSU the comes in the PC with a high quality brand: Seasonic, Corsair, or PC Power & Cooling of at least 750w output.
 
- From what you say, running 2x295 is a waste of a second 295 and the power to run it, and the AC to cool it.

- Cyberpower allows several quality PSUs to be specced. But apparently you bought a package and the only spec missing on Newegg is PSU wattage lol. Which PSU do you have (brand and model)?

-BTW, what mobo do you have (make and model)?

Suggest you return the card for cash credit, and go out on a date :)
