This is not unlike asking for new tires, but nothing as to what size rims and what car it's going on!

http://www.tomshardware.com has a few articles about power supplies that you can read about to see if you can figure out if your machine has the power.

My bad. I was actually asking the minimum I would need just to run the cards themselves, but here are the specs. to the best of my knowledge:

3.0 GHz Pentium 4 Prescott w/ HT and 800fsb, 1GB PC-4000 DDR2 500MHz ram, dual 36.7GB Western Digital Raptor 10000rpm HDDs (raid 0), Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS sound card, [soon to be] dual GeCube x300 256mb video cards, 8x dvd-rw, 16x dvd drive, 56x drive, 3.5" floppy, multimedia keyboard, Intellimouse 4.0 wireless mouse.

If I plug that into tomshardware I go a number that I'd pick up the 500Watt units.
