    i7 950 @ stock
    asus rampage III extreme
    12 gb corsair ddr3 1600
    300 gb velociraptor
    1 evga gtx 480

    Definitely would handle 2. 3 might be a challenge, especially because of the rail design of that PSU....you'd have to put one of the video cards on one of the 12v rails and two on the other rail.

    How many amps on the 12V rail does Nvidia recommend for tri sli 480's? I'm guessing upwards of 90-100amps?

    TBH I don't think it is a good idea.
