I was wondering, do you really need a power supply that supports SLI to run SLI video cards? My Video cards EVGA GeForce 7600GS dont requier 6-pin power connectors and my MOBO has a molex connector to power my PCI-E slots. Anyone, know anything of this?

No, you don't. An SLI power supply is generally one that has been certified by nVIDIA as having enough amps on the 12V rail and the right connectors. As long as you have the connectors you need and enough power your good.
