Will my PSU Allow SLI?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello, I recently put together a system 2-3 months ago and am now looking into getting another video card to run SLI. I was wondering if my PSU could handle powering both video cards sufficiently.

Here's a link for the video card.

Here's the link for my PSU:

Thanks for the help

What's the rest of your system? Fill it in here http://www.overclock.net/specs.php?do=addsystem and it will show in your signature so everyone can see it when you ask for help.

You should be able to, just barely though. And no overclocking.

EDIT: My apologies. I thought it was a 530w PSU. You should be fine with that. 630w should be good enough for SLi 460s. If it gives you problems just up to a 750w PSU.

Btw, Welcome to OCN and fill out your system specs here so we can help you out more:

That rosewill PSU is pretty decent, you could run SLI 460 on that.

Ummm no I don't think so, that's incorrect. My 650w handles my rig like a champ.

I'm also running heavily overclocked everything on a Corsair TX650, no problems

A decent 630w unit should be fine, but TBH I don't know much about that one.
Some Roswill units are good, some aren't (hails PSU guru beacon for a/m model lol).

Also full system specs would be helpful, you can fill out your rig specs in user cp / system info / add system

you should be able to. make sure you have enough amps on the 12v, though.

I edited to reflect my mistake. I thought he had a 530w PSU, not a 630w.

Short story...you are fine.

Most power requirements are, ahem, "bloated" here.

I don't know the specifics on power supplies. How am I supposed to check if I have enough amps?
