post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am considering running a 2nd evga gtx 465. Would 750watt psu be enough and would it be a bad idea if I use the supplied molex to 6-pin conectors for the 2nd card. And will a phenom II x2 555 be cause bottlenecking with using 2 gtx 465's. Sorry for all the questions cant seem to find the info I am looking for.

Thanks to those who answer

PhenomII x2 @stock will bottleneck. @4Ghz, as your sig says - no.
Also your sig says PhenomII x3, this won't bottleneck.

Why not use them I am curious. My psu only has 2 6 pin connectors, which kinda sucks I need 2 to power just the 1 gtx 465.
