post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi i'm building a gaming pc the specs are:
Intel core i7 950
Asus P6X58D-E (Got already)
KFA2 Gtx 460 EX OC SLI Kit
6gb Mushkin Silverline (Getting Today C'mon Postie)
Corsair Tx 650w Psu (Got Aleady)

On this webpage http://www.kfa2.com/gtx460oc1024sli.html if you click on the second picture then it says that it requires a 950w psu. ***. Also will my gpu be ok if i use a dual molex to 6 pin adapter for one of the cards.

Thanks, Matthew

It should work.

You're close to your PSU's max output I think. Might want to invest in a good 700W.

Don't quote me on this though.

650w will be enough for this.
