Depending on the video cards you choose along with other internal
components, make sure your computers power supply has enough wattage
to feed them all. I was surprised that my 400W PS wasn't able to feed
my two Nvidia graphics cards (old 8400 and newer 9400).  Aside from
the video cards, I only had a AMD X2 3200 CPU, two 2GB sticks of RAM,
and a "green" 500GB hdd.
