A) Yes

B) Yes. Although, with that Intel socket 775 Q6600 and that motherboard, IMO if you try to SLI anything higher than about a GTX 460 I think you will run into bottleneck problems.

Both cards should hook right up and it looks like your power supply is more than up to the task of powering them. /thumbup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbup:' />
