Default Dedicated Graphics card power supply

Has anyone heard any news about the Thermaltake Purepower Graphics card power supplies ?
I'm looking at using one of these to power 2 x FX4500 Quadro cards in SLI.

No idea. I searched for them and found they were "in stock" in a local store so I wondered what you wanted to hear.

Years ago, I had two supplies in my PC. That was when the big and power-hungry diskdrive caused visible brightness variations of the picture during active seeking. I used one supply for the motherboard and cards, another for the disk and other peripherals. It worked fine.

But those were the days that a single supply was up to 230 watts and when I rebuilt my system I just put a 430 watt supply in it that powers everything. of course that large and loud disk is also gone.

I would think that a single large supply should be OK for a computer. For two videocards you probably want the largest standard-case supply you can get.
