Will My PSU be enough for SLI?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm currently running a phenom X6 1090T and an EVGA GTX 570 SC @ 797 MHz. I was thinking of getting a second card to match it. Problem is that I'm running a corsair TX750. Can I do SLI without overloading my PSU? thanks!

As others have stated, your Corsair TX750 is more than adequate for 2 GTX 570.

If you're going to use a PSU calculator, use OCN's calculator. It's the only one I've seen that doesn't massively overstate power requirements. It's also the only one put out by someone that isn't trying to sell you PSU, so maybe there's a correlation there.
