How powerful of a PSU would I need for 2x 570 SLI? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
750w will work, I'd echo the recommendation for a 850w though.

Simple question to save you money, is how high do you plan to overclock them?

Most likely for a decent overclock, a 750w is more than enough.
If you plan to grow with it, get a 850w.

I would say 850-900 for reliable operation.

A 750 would be fine if you bought a super reliable 80+gold one. But for that price you could get a 1000 watt power supply and be good.

Those cards can draw up to 250 watts, maybe al ittle more when overclocked.

A cheap 750 watt will not last with 600 watt draw in a room warmer than 70 F. One year, maybe less.
