Your calculator has me doing this easily with my Seasonic 750 (as does Thermaltake and MSI), while Newegg, ASUS, Corsair and NZXT all direct me to step up to PSUs in the 850-1100 watt range...go figure.

 

It's all about the money.

 

The two best PSU calculators on the internet are this one ("PSU Calc"), and eXtreme Outer Vision's PSU calculator which is also being used by Thermaltake, Antec and probably MSI.

 

http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

 

However, these web calculators must be used correctly.

 

Anyway, having two 7950s with an i7-920 at 3.6 GHz would only require a good 550w PSU, but a good 650W PSU would be better because then it would be easier to find one that has four PCI-E connectors. A good 750w PSU is unnecessary overkill unless you plan on heavily overclocking the 7950s.

thank you for this it is amazing.

Saved me $100 because I now know my Emermax Liberty 620w will run a 1055t and two 5870 in crossfire

It's NVIDIA SLI CERTIFIED so I figured it would be fine but it's nice to know for sure.

Those certifications are just marketing hype. They don't mean anything.

that sucks, at least they could do is a little testing, but it seems all they have to do is pay Nvidia $$$$ to make the claim they're certified.

They probably do, but I've never seen a good quality-made PSU that has enough power and connectors without an SLI or Crossfire certification being unable to handle SLI or Crossfire. So, the certifications don't mean that non-certified PSUs can't handle SLI or Crossfire. What matters is the output capacity. The number of connectors matters too, but there are Molex to PCI-E adapters. So, just because a PSU doesn't have an SLI or a Crossfire certification, it doesn't mean that it's inferior or anything.

This has been very useful, thanks!

If anyone can recommend a psu though, this calc gives me a system total of 600w. Thats the sig rig, including 5 case fans, one additional hard drive, and two 6950's ( I want a 290 or 780, but haven't done the research so I'm hopefully giving myself too much room for error!)

Shall I grab a 850w and be done with, in case I xfire/sli the 780 or 290? Also, looks like Corsair PSU's aren't loved because of their OEMS, can anyone recommend a good PSU for the money?

sorry but Im not reading 63 pages. I got this error

basically when pressing the back button for the physics option it lets you press it more than you can.

also missing 700 series graphics cards.

other than that looks good works pretty well

Looks like an awesome tool, but it seems like your site is down.
Anyhow, is this tool able to calculate multi-cpu systems?
post #630 of 798
Using that Outervision I dropped alot of wattage with new build

Old build
AMD Phenom II x4 960T @ 4.2GHz, 4x4GB DDR3, GTX570, lots of fans/drives/usb said 690W recommended

New build
Intel i7 4770k stock, 4x4GB DDR3, GTX760, "...." 491W recommended.

Guess my 850w is a bit of overkill now. I did run GTX760 in SLI for a minute but returned one of them.
