    I've ordered a very similar setup, except I'll be using a Tagan 480W.

    The TP380 only has 6 molex connectors and 18A on the 12V rail. Plus it doesn't have PCI-E connectors, etc. It's a PSU for yesterday's computer - I don't think it's gonna sit happily with tomorrow's...

    Nope it requires a power adapter to work properly as the AGP/PCI-E connector doesn't provide enough juice!

    Still not got the components yet so just asking in advance. Like I say, it's been ages since I looked inside my computer. I have been so skint lately.

    Still working off an Athlon 1.4 Tbird, 256MB RAM and the first ever ATI Radeon!!! Almost a relic
    Plug the graphics card into the mains!

    Every computer componant should get power from your power supply, you can't plug them into the mains... If you want your power supply to power an SLI setup then I'd recommend something similar to the Tagan 480W PSU, as it's the one they used in the Hexus SLI reviews and had no problems with. The Antec NeoPower is also a great PSU from what I've if you can spend a bit more for it.
    I don't mean to sound cold, or cruel, or vicious, but I am so that's the way it comes out.
