Two MSI 580 Lightings on Silverstone ST85F-P 850W?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just impulsively bought 2 MSI GTX 580 Lighting - couldn't resist the open box price... Now basically what topic says: am I crazy to even think I can run these on my Silverstone ST85F-P 850W? Rest of the system in sig. CPU is @ 3.8Ghz, and I dont plan to OC the lightings.

And in case me being crazy, what would be the better solution: getting new 1200 PSU or adding 2nd 400W second one and powering one card?

Thanks for all suggestions.

You're fine.

That PSU is a very strong PSU and will easily run those cards (SLI 590's [quad-sli] in a test done by hardocp system total was pulling ~ 950w)
