[GTX 580] SLI Build

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
This is the build im looking at:

Is everything compatible?
Will the PSU be enough for SLI 580's?
Will that motherboard be able to handle two 580's - take three slots each

Thanks.

Get a 1200w PSU if you are planning to run two 580s in SLI.

Yes, but remember the output of a PSU will degrade overtime (unsure if it is efficiency or amps that degrade). 1000w PSU now won't always perform at that. I'd suggest investing in the 1200w PSU. Honestly that's just my take on the matter. I'd be interested to see what others would say.

The main question now is will that mobo be able to handle two 580's? Those Phantoms take up 3slots each.

As long as you don't use huge coolers on the 580s, I suppose it will fit.
