then why did my friends Kill o Watt meter just now read 436 watts. i started dirt 3 after we hooked it up and thats what it read right before it shut down. you have to take into account my drives, mobo, and case cooling/lighting. i know my current psu wont actually put out 500w, obviously it won cause it shut down at 436. really 300 watt to power an oc'ed quad core and two oc'ed 6770's i think your math is a bit off. my cpu pulls atleast half of that 300 watts when oc'ed i'm gonna stick with my previous decision to go a little overkill with a 750w. if it pulls that much with just one card i want to play it pretty safe when i get my second card i know my system will only use at most 550 watts at a full load not even that while gaming. but having a 750 enables me to do future upgrades as well. plus this is still my daily use system my new i7 system is mostly for testing purposes only.
