hi,
i have a question about silent pro m 700w, i intend to do an sli with gtx460, i saw that the gtx460 requires two 6 pin connectors so for an sli i will need 4. The psu on the other hand it says it is sli ready but it has two pci 6+2 pin cables. How the sli is going to work, are the cables dual or something ??
appreciate any help

That's because you need a higher wattage PSU to run GTX 460 SLI. You could use the molex to 6-pin adapters but you will be hitting the brink of the PSU. Depending on the rest of your components, you will be looking at 750W+.

Yea, two GTX 460 when under max load will stress that PSU. Without knowing what other computer components you have, I'd recommend a 800+ 80+ gold certified PSU.
