Ahh, well with 560 SLI (since there's no chance in tri-SLI with them) I would honestly go with a 750W PSU. Anywhere between 700W and 800W would be a safe PSU range to go with. I personally went with a quality 700W with my plans for a future second 6950, and I'll have room to spare as well.

You may, honestly, just want to buy a single 560 first and see if that satisfies you. What resolution will you be playing at? Anything 1080p and under will be almost if not completely maxed out by a single 560.

For searching help, check out this link. 700-800W PSUs from quality manufacturers. Let us know which one youre thinking of deciding on, as every manufacturer has dud models. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...S&PageSize=100



My personal recommendation for you is the Seasonic X750 or Corsair AX750.

A pair of 570s would make me recommend the Corsair AX850.

- You don't need 2x570s to game at your resolution, you can max anything on a single 570.

To simplify:

SLI 560s: AX or HX 850 is more than enough

Single 570 (recommended): AX or HX 850 is enough

SLI 570s: AX or HX 850 is still enough

It's a great case, just built a rig for a friend using the white edition with the window side panel; excellent cooling (with room to improve it if you so wish), can support the H60, good cable management, good overall quality and a really good price. Can't go wrong really.

690 II Advanced is a fantastic case, you just have to move/add fans around a bit, there's dozens of topics about it on this forum.
