Sli PSU for $70 bucks?!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am a bit confused, in the newegg specs it says Sli: yes.

The power supply is an Antec and has 500watt psu.. It *supposedly* also has dual PCI-e connectors.. Would it be stable enough to run two 7900gt's?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103937

If it isn't capable of doing so then what *cheap* like $50- dollar psu (non-sli) do you recommend to power a dfi ultra-d, amd 3700+ (will be oc'd) and a 7900gt.

And these Additional components:

512 mb corsair xms ram running in dual channel with two 256 mb corsaidr xms (on the other side of the 512)

Two DVD-Rom drives (one a burner)

two HDD's

about 5-6 fans.

Check nvidia's SLI website. It should.

Negative.. Not on the list, yet it states that it has dual pci-e connections on various websites..

This is pretty odd. Anyone have any more insight?

The reason it might not be SLI certified is because of rail stability. If I were you I'd spend another $15 and get a Sunbeam Nuuo.

This is a great PSU as well.

With all those peripherials and 2x7900s you should consider an PS that's a bit more powerful and SLI certed!
