Go to the SLI Certified Ecosystem page to find out whether your PSU is certified or not.

Good link, but it doesn't list a pair of 9600 GSO cards.

I'd be more cheerful about recommending (or not) the EZCool PSU if I could see its specs online. Must be a real cheapie.

The page is rather short on specs.

I didn't find the details for that model online, but a similar model has 24A available at +12V. That doesn't guarantee that it won't work for your application, but it's not encouraging.

For example: if you check the Corsair CX400 at the same vendor, it has (www.corsairmemory.com) 30A available at +12V. Naturally, it costs not quite double the EZCool unit.

I know that it's easy to spend other people's money, but I suggest that you look further.

My usual starting point is www.newegg.com, if only because of their "power search" tool. You might give it a look, even though they don't do business in the UK.

As far as I can see on the web, the general opinion seems to be:

Cheap, silent, stay away and buy something else

well I finally received and email from them and they said that "it's capable BUT go for this one as it will give you more headroom and this would be better Storm 800watts" ok so basically that 600 one is a trick right?? wow what a great catch it's SLI but not really SLI

ha ha ha although the storm 800 I know for sure it's a good one cause a friend of my bought it and it works i don't care for how long as i will get OCZ one so it's just for short term

but you gotta love them for try (SLI but not really SLI) ha ha ha
