Default Re: GTX 280 vs. 8800GTS G92 SLI

Pretty sure my Power supply will be sufficent: 850W Thermaltake(quad sli/8800gtx sli compatible).
If by "Crosshair M2", you are referring to an ASUS Crosshair II Formula Socket AM2+ motherboard, I can confirm that two GTX280's fit OK on the board and perform very well when paired with a Phenom II CPU. Not sure which CoolerMaster case you are referring to, but I've experienced no problems fitting everything into a CoolerMaster stacker 830.
