Therefore that system would run just fine on a 650W powersupply.

So why do you take their wattage at the plug, then add 150W for fun? Why not at 500W for fun? Do I need a 1200W PSU for my E6300 with crossfire 4850s? Where does the made up math end? Add up TDPs, and that IS your worst case scenario. No need to throw random numbers into the pile.
Even the PSU calcs only come up with 710W for his system when I throw a W/C config at it (+50W recommended), so a 750 would be plenty (we all know they over-estimate).

Add in a moderate oc, say 1.1v, and your looking at an additional 100w.

The HX850(70a) is the minimum I would recommend for sli 480, that would only be if the system was slim.
That 100W is at the plug, which means around 85W more draw from the PSU, not 100W (my info being your link, you should read it more carefully).

FURMARK is not a valid method of computing power draw, as nothing but FURMARK draws that much power. Not even distributed computing apps pull that much power.

I did not say that I added 150W "for fun". I said that I added the 150W "to account for everything else in the system" (if you don't believe me, then re-read my post).

To answer your question of where I got this "150W" from, I got it from Guru3D. In every modern GPU review I've seen of theirs, they always recommend adding 100-150W to account for the rest of the system. So, that's what I always do now. After all, that's a Furmark test result which means the rest of the system isn't being stressed in the least bit. It's just sitting there idling for the most part (yes, the CPU is doing a little bit, but not enough).

However, I have to hand it to you: you did a good job at attacking me and putting words in my mouth. Now I'm irritated.

You're correct, absolute worst case scenario.
But the TPU link is measuring cards only, nothing else.

The point is the GTX480 is a very power hungry card and does indeed exceed the worst case scenario tdp you mentioned.

I don't need any high power monitoring equipment to know that sli 480s shut my psu down at 1200w, figure in effeciency of 80%, 960w.

And ignore the furmark results, look at the C2 results on TPU, 272w stock.
That could very well equal 400w when overclocked.

TwoCables this is a question for you not an attack(Your irritated I know).I have a 480 and a 260 in my sig.So If I added another 480 to replace the 260 for folding would a 850 be enough?I know I have a 950 but it's just a question.I do fold on both cards and Bigadv fold the CPU.Would folding have that much power draw to need bigger than a 850?I do agree that a 850 is enough for the OP's question and I agree with all you have said.I just want to add to the line of questioning.

lol nah, I'm only irritated at him and only for the way he said everything. It was confrontational - as though he is asking for a fight.

For folding on both the CPU and GPU at the same time and also considering grunion's results, I'd be uncomfortable using even a top-quality 850W unit, but a 950W would definitely make me feel comfortable (especially the beloved TX950).

well like i said in my post.
I7 930 @ 4.2 ht on and 2 evga stock 480s. overclocked to 850 cores in bc2 for lets say 2 hours. and exit shut down rig. the psu on my tx750 was spinin for a good 5 min till it shut off. Now i been overclocking for a few years and in pc for all my life. never had a psu run that long after a pc shut down. So that day i got the ax1200 and i belive it killed a plater drive and a ssd. so i got a ax850 ran the 480 sli till i got the 580 in evga trade up. your cpu should run less watt then my i7 so u r safe. but if alot of usb stuff like me mite want more. each usb is ~5 watts, keyboard(well mines ps2), n52, g500, rudders, trottle ,stick, xbox contorler, ipod, walkman, camras , ssd, platter drive, 3 120mm fans, blueray ,3 140mm fans , pump, bluetooth adapter. thats ez over 150 watts.
Now my i7 @ 4.2 is i gess 150-220 watts.
580 @ 950 core arg. 250+ watts
all usb stuff and fans and pump. 200 watts ez.
600 watts, now psu is a gold so 85 % i think. so power draw is 700 watts. so sli 480 witch are more power hungry its close. but cpu eats less watts.

Pardon my abrasiveness, but I tire from hearing people (particularly those in sales, and it seems to be repeated here), spouting minimum required powersupply wattage numbers out of their backside. When one sees "minimum 400W PSU" on the back of a box, that number is truly meaningless.

The only reason I upgraded from a 650W supply (which was more than sufficient) to an 850, was the reviews on the AX 850 (and my server needed a powersupply, so it got the 650). I've never seen such clean 12VDC output. I was also looking for 4 6 pin PCIe connectors, and my supply only had two. In no way do I need an 850W supply, even with the 4 harddrives, raid card, two pumps, 6 fans, and two dvd drives.

Pardon my abrasiveness, but I tire from hearing people (particularly those in sales, and it seems to be repeated here), spouting minimum powersupply numbers out of their backside.
Yep, but I've found that most people here prefer to know what the worst-case scenario is. It's all about peace of mind; knowing that if you were to run into that worst-case scenario, then you're covered!

I know that. AMD's and NVIDIA's recommendations are concerning peak-rated power supplies. I recommend quality, continuous-rated units.
