I was just wondering, what are the power requirements to SLI 2 PNY XLR8 VCG98GTEE1XEB GeForce 9800 GT 1GB graphics cards? I have a 550 watt PSU, and I just finished building my first computer, but it turns off after running for 30 seconds, so I just assumed it was the lack of power. If anyone knows a solution to my problem, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

EDIT: It turns out that wasnt the case. I removed one of the graphics card and the same error still occured. When I turn on the computer, a short beep occurs, and then it turns off 30 seconds later. What may be the problem? The link to the power supply, chassis, and motherboard are below.

Is the CPU fan plugged in and spinning?
The power will automatically shut off if the CPU temp reaches the danger zone.

Yes, the stock fan that came with the i7 processor is connected and functioning. I didn't use any thermal compound, and the stuff on the fan melted right on, but I removed the fan once.
