That is way too low. It also depends on your CPU, but i'd say around 500 at the very least, 600 to be safe.

8800GT's dont need that much. They are much less power consuming than the original GTS. Many people run them at 400W just fine. Take a look at this: consume1.jpg

Yeah, 600 - 700 is way to high. I use 550 just dandy, according to one of those fancy things that measures your PSU usage, im using 40% at load, so like <300 watts

I use a 500W SeaSonic (32A +12V) in my system just fine.

The +12V amperage is more important than just having a massive wattage rating.

Your psu needs a +12 volt rail with 28 amps or combined 12+ rail of 28 amps

An 8800GT is WAY more efficient power wise than the non G92 8800s. It only needs 26A on the 12V rail vs 30A for a 8800GTX. You can run it just fine with a $35 Antec Earthwatts 380W, which has 27A on the 12V rail.
