I'm pretty confident, but...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just want to be extra sure that my PSU is OK, in dealing with the second GTX560 Ti I just got. I'm not folding on the cards, but I am maxing out games and they're running 950 core.

I have a Seasonic X-760 on its way, but I don't want to over do it on my current one, as I'd like to use it later on.

I am future proofing. I plan on buying a pair of GTX580's soon and would like the extra efficiency + full modularity.

Far as I know you can run 560s on a 650W PSU, not sure how much your pulling from the wall though.

If you plan on getting SLI 580s you may want the 850W or the X860(if it is out yet) to be safe, though I've seen some members here run SLI 580s at stock on 750W.

I think the 760 is in no man's land if you're aiming at the 580. It'll work well with your 560TI SLI but it seems like 760w would be overkill for a single 580 but at the same time would leave you with not much overclocking headroom if you decide to get a second 580 in the future. Your current psu is good for a single 580 or if you want to be safe with two 580's in the future, maybe get an 850w power supply which seems to be a good for futureproofing. Not saying that the X-760 won't work with two 580's but I'd be hesitant about overclocking the cpu and gpu by much
