How much headroom does my friend have?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I built him a PC a while ago, back when I wasn't that smart with PCs but could still get around the block. He's looking to SLI anothe GTX 570 and wants to know if he'll be comfortable with his current power supply.

Antec 750w EA750
i7 2600 (why didn't I buy a K? sadface)
1TB WD Blue HDD, maybe an SSD soon
GTX 570
Creative X-Hi Soundcard
2 DDR3 sticks
ASRock Extreme4 P67

The 750w will hold up for him for a while, correct? Thanks.
My lovely PC

Your friend's Antec PSU shouldn't have any problem powering SLI 570s.

Awesome. Thanks. At least when I built this I didn't totally fail (Bought when sandy bridge problems were rampant, non unlocked CPU, Intel motherboard, meh RAM, no SSD, whatever, he's fixed some of that.)
