    Is it enough with 1000W PSU when I got a Quad Core CPU and 2 8800GTX cards?

    It says you got to have a 450W PSU for one card and I guess that it includes a "basic" system setup?

    Found out that recommended was 750W...

    Having more than you need is a good idea not bad. You can add more sata drives for more hard drive space without having to worry. Heck some motherboards have 8 hookups for sata drives but not too many cases have 8 HDD slots. If all your hard drives are Sata you can put 4 dvd burners in your 51/4 bay and start a production company on the IDE line.

    Yes, it is good to have more than recommended just in case. You are very lucky.

    Stay away from the cheap PSUs. Get a decent brand like Seasonic or Corsair.
