    Okay cool. Seems I only have the 240 PS though. I have to hunt down a pair of 330s now.

    You only need one, dual 330W PSUs are useless, it can only manage and intake 330W

    I actually need 2, one to mount to the desk and one to travel with. Seems like these were $30ish at one point, but i can't find them for less than $80 right now. Anyone have any tips?

    That link takes you to crappy OEM 330w for various dell desktops

    If you check "over $30" it reveals the PSUs themselves
    I believe the P/N is 330AD-B, but I'm not sure

    So, in relation to the 980m card(s?), what should i look for? I'm on a fairly limited budget but feel this is more of an investment

    Any non-gsync GPU should work, preferably ones with SLI connector
