Would 550 watt PSU be enough ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone! I got a quick question for some of the more experienced folks out there.

I just currently decided to upgrade my old Q6600 build after noticing how big of a bottle neck it was for my evga gtx 560. Mind you it served it purpose very nicely over the couple years ive had it.

Old spec
Q6600 @ 3.5 GHZ
Old cards: 9600GT x2 SLI
Memory:4 x Crosair Xms2 DDr2 1gb each
Mobo: Evga 680i Se

My current build
Cpu :i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155
Mobo:GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD4-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68
Gpu:Evga gtx 560 1gb (Sli once prices drop)
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000)

Well on to my main question. Would my old SLI approved PSU be enough to power my new build? It is an Enermax FMA II Model:EG565P-VE 535W

I have so far not had any problems with my system or PSU!

I would appreciate any honest advice regarding my question. Therefore if possible I would much rather stay with my old PSU if possible. But if it would hold back my current build in anyway then I would not mind upgrading to a stronger PSU at all.

P.S I built this system in hopes of running BF3

It would work for now but if you go SLI you have to get a new one.
