SLI with non SLI? PSU accepts?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello! I own an ASUS Rampage Formula X48nd a XFX GeForce 9600GT Alpha Dog, running under a BFG 550W PSU with 2 connectors for PCIE. Ill apply the SLI Patch to the motherboard, and i need to know if you guys think my PSU will hold it. Its a good quality modular PSU, and gave no problems until now...

Im very afraid to apply the patch then my PSU dont give the needed power...

For two 9600 GTs in SLI, it should be more than enough.
