I have a 700 Watt OCZ GameXStream Power Supply, I know it says it supports SLI/Xfire, but.... it only has two pci-e connections...how bad of an idea would it be to try to run 2 5850's off the PSU, one using the Molex -> PCI-E Converters?

I'm running a Core i7 920, with a Radeon 4890 atm and it runs fine.

Edit: I meant 700 watt.

Thank you, I know corsair's a good brand, now to wait for the non-reference 5850's...

Edit: Would it actually be possible to find a modular one at the price? I don't know how much modular adds to the cost though.

Can you explain to me how that one is better? I can see at least in efficiency it is not better, but I cannot see how that one is better.. Corsair is a very good brand in PSU's and RAM, and I trust them.
