FSP Epsilon 800 and 2x GTX 480s?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I wonder if my power supply "FSP Epsilon 800" can handle 2 GTX 480s at stock clocks

http://fsplifestyle.com/psu/epsilon-85-plus/epsilon-85-plus-800/

overall the power supply is stable. no problem for more than a year on this rig

do you think it can handle a second 480?

851 times 0.85(average efficiency varies from 0.80-0.9) = 723w.

130w head room based on their measurements.

As long as you don't overclock or run intense benchmarks... It would be fine for gaming.
