i would suggest you go to each manufacturers website and study them as well as search the internet for reviews, you usually will get good info on a message board but you should not rely on this info as your sole source for a decision.

How much is the the 600w? If your going with a PSU that large the Thermaltake 680W is a great value price/Watt. Its an extremely stable PSU and runs quite and much cooler than any other I have owned.

Look, it's like this. If you're gonna spend thousands of your hard earned dollars on your new dream SLI system, don't skimp on the most important component in it: The Power Supply.

Spend the extra $ on this:<A HREF="http://www.pcpowercooling.com/products/power_supplies/highperformance/turbocools/510/index.htm" target="_new"> The PC Power & Cooling Turbo Cool 510 SLI</A>

Actually, the price is $229 direct from PCP&C. With a full 5 year warranty. Only a handfull of manufacturers offer that.
