just to follow up if anyone cares...with a modest overclock on my 2nd card, and benchmark tested with CPU @ 4.8 GHz, my kill-a-watt showed a max Wattage of 655W (tower only, no monitors/external HDD,etc)

so a real good 750W PSU would have been probably ok..i guess....if i OC more obv the wattage would increase (currently 5 sata drives and H80 cooling)...but i got a good deal on the AX860i so i'm at 76% power capacity (though the digital PSUs do well with supplying more wattage if needed, read lots of reviews and tests online, I think they could get 896W stable

pretty happy with the purchase
