SLI/GPU vs PSU advise

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Rather wanted to be safe than sorry with my next PC move.

At the moment, I have an urge to upgrade my GFX. At present, I have an NVIDIA MSI 670 PE 2GB, and am thinking SLI or 700 series upgrade, but am completely oblivious to the requirements of either in terms of my Power Supply.

First thing, installing a new PSU would be completely insane an idea for a folk like myself. Installing a new Cooler was almost too much for me, so repositioning a million cables would definately crack my brain, and nervous system to death.

At the moment I have a COUGAR 750CM installed, but I thought it would be important to note every piece of kit available in my box for you guys, not just those in the sig, as I don't trust a online power calculator. So Here goes, just a summary.

P8P67 Deluxe Mobo
Thermaltake Armor Revo (3x 200x200x30 Fans, 1x 140x140x25 Fan)
Intel i7 3770K 4.4 Ghz (overclocked with a maximum voltage of 1.214V)
Cooler Master TPC 812 CPU cooler
16GB (4x4) Patroit Series 8 1600 DDR3 RAM
NVIDIA MSI 670 PE 2GB
Xonar Essence STX Sound Card 1x PCI-E
OCZ Vertex 4 SSD
4 x WD Caviar Green HDD

So what do you reckon? Can I SLI this thing with another MSI card, or would an upgrade to perhaps a GTX 760/770 be a better option? I don't even know if its possible to do either with my current setup?

Your help and advise would be helpful.

Stay with single card solution..... buy a 700 series card and enjoy your games!!
