If you're talking about two 560 Ti's, then let's look at quality 650W power supplies. If you're talking about two non-Ti 560's, then let's look at quality 550W units.

I recommend not using these silly things because they usually end up causing those who use them to spend more money on a larger PSU when they don't have to.

I don't really do any calculating. Well, for example:

For powering a system that has one 570 in it, NVIDIA recommends a PSU that has a peak capacity of 550W. Most 550W power supplies should be able to continuously deliver up to 400-450W which means that any quality 450W power supply would be enough (any quality unit we recommend here on OCN have continuous ratings, not peak).

When considering adding a 2nd card, I've found that I can usually just add about 100W to the manufacturer's recommendation. So when I see "550W" recommended, I know that I can usually just safely recommend a quality 650W unit for adding a 2nd card.

Although, this doesn't work so smoothly with cards like the GTX 590. I have to be just a little more careful with these kind of beasts.

So if I were to see someone building my sig rig right now, then I would recommend a quality 550W power supply because NVIDIA recommends a PSU that has a peak rating of 600W for powering a system that has one 580 in it.

A quality 750W power supply like the TX750M is enough for this with two 570s in it with overclocking on top.

How much money can be spent on the PSU?

Amen, brother. That's what it's all about! If it weren't for OCN, then I'd be useless on OCN.

So, $130-$150 eh? Can you shop at Newegg?

I don't know of any programs. Besides though, software shouldn't be trusted for such things. The only things we should really trust software for (when it comes to these kind of things) are certain voltages such as our CPU's core voltage. I mean software is not always accurate for other things like the PSU voltage or our wattage draws.

Cooler suggestion.. if you can spare the difference, get a Scythe Mugen 3 or a Zerotherm ZT10D, much better than the 212+

ps. excellent mobo choice.

This is a way better PSU for 29$ more.
