post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. I currently have this PSU in sig, I have 600 WATTS with 43 amps on my 12v rails.. I have a second 8800GTS 320MB on the way it should be here by saturday. NOw Is my computer capable of running 8800GTS 320mB sli? I just want to be sure. I assume it is more than enough. It is SLI ready as well.

You will be fine hell a 550 watt would do the job.

Each card is gonna use about 150W Max on load,

So 300W between the pair

About 135W for the CPU

I'd say you'd just be alrite

435W for the GPU + CPU, that leaves ya 175W For the rest of the system, seems more than alrite



Dammit i was beaten...Only cos' i backed up my claims n provided proof =(

Yeah, and have fun with SLI!! You're pretty lucky. With all these people going SLI, I just might do that some day. Of course, it'll be on an X48 mobo or better.

This will be my second SLI rig..
Whenever I build a new Rig I ensure I have an SLI mobo just in case. so I did it again. My last SLI setup was 2x7600gs is SLI... that was 2 years ago. Im looking forward to my card getting here.
