BTW out of curiousity, PC Power and Cooling sells a Turbo Cool 510 SLI version of their power supply and it adds two 2 PCI Express Video connectors but what do these plug into?
Here is a diagram of what they look like:

It sounds great. however unless you have a nice set of speakers, then i would suggest scrapping the sound card and using onboard audio.

Sound like a cool build. I don't know for sure, but a guess would be they plug into your PCIe video card (card's) but as I said I don't really know.

lol, yeah CoronoaCA, the video card sorta needs...well...you know...power? But I'd opt for the Antec NeoPower 480, it's cheaper, modular and got a 10/10 from MaxPC, good luck with the build.

Yes, the 6800gt will need it's own power line. That's where the 6 pin connector comes into play. The smaller cards like my 6600gt pci-e, don't need the extra power. I think someone told me two molex connectors = 1 6 pin pci-e connector. Also, are you concerned with noise? here's another sli psu that is a good bit cheaper than the PCP&C. I'm sure it's more quiet as well. Also, I'd keep the audigy. It affects your gaming performance (not a ton, but still). :D
