You are looking at 750 watts then.
If you want to BIOS volt mod them you might be looking at a 1000 watt PSU.

But in the end you would be better off with a single GTX 1080 vs two 290´s.

Thank you, shilka, for helping me in numerous threads.
I've crossfired in the past so the possibility of 2 cards isn't out of the question, especially since the r9 290s can be had for less than $200 now.
With how efficient and powerful the Pascal cards are it would be best to just get a 1080, I agree.

I was thinking more along the lines of how much multi GPU support sucks in some games.
I am getting a GTX 1080 later this year myself after i have upgrade my motherboard/CPU/RAM and monitor.

Really wish a single card was powerful enough for gaming at 2560x1440 with max settings and 165 FPS but thats impossible even for a GTX 1080.
Which means i need to get two and some games like Just Cause 3 has ZERO multi GPU support which sucks.

I am going to buy an Asus PG279Q here in may or june, the only thing i am missing is the money from my old monitor which my stepdad is going to buy.

I would probably wait and see what the new GPU's bring, if the rumors are true, we might be getting Fury X levels of performance at vastly lower power requirements for about $300.

Yeah, exactly. I'm waiting to see what AMD has in store for us.

Why is this thread no longer being maintained? It's arguably the most useful threads on the entire site!

That said, should I keep my Rosewill Capstone 450 if I upgrade to a GTX 1070/1080? It's a GPU only folding rig, running 24/7. It's got a GTX 970 now which is probably more than I should expect it to handle, but don't rib me too much for that.

Need to buy a cheap durable around 500w psu for my mum. Two cx430 has been dead with her desktop, one from warranty after first one died. Please suggest. She just mainly plays mini game. It is a 960T cpu with onboard gpu.
