Hey, with my new system coming, do you think my PSU will be able to handle the more powerful components?

Antec SmartPower 400WSL, its about 2 to 3 months old, real nice. ATX12V

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
2GB Corsair PC3200
eVGA nForce 4 SLi mobo
eVGA GeForce N518 7800GT 256mb PCI-E - I've heard it can run off 350W
Antec P-160WF(has 2 120mm fans, one with a steady blue LED)
Antec case also comes with LCD Temperature and Fan Control Display


One more Question: Because it is not an SLi PSU, will it still work with an SLi mobo only using 1 GPU? Thanks.

I don't know what a SLI PSU is, but mine certainly isn't and it works with SLI.

Sli just means that nV puts there stamp of approval on it. Nothing more.

If it is Nvidia SLI approved you can be assured it will come with 2 six-pin drops for the cards which is good if you are going SLI. Otherwise, not much more except maybe meeting Nv power requirements which many psu's can do.

Hmm thanks for the info so far guys. The only reason I said ''SLi PSU" was because I thought they different type of molex connecter or something. Nevermind then, but do you think it could handle these components? Hope so! (xmasgrin)
