Phaedrus, would I be correct saying my PSU could handle 2 470s?
It's borderline, but would probably work as long as you don't run Furmark and LinX at the same time.

I have no idea.

I just felt like being mean.
90% of the time I am the one with a crappy computer, so for once I can brag a bit.
sorry about that.
but yes, your system isn't pulling that much power anyway.

If the setups were close to exact i.e ram, mobo specs etc. it would be pretty damn close. I actually have it clocked at 4.1ghz right now I just didn't update my sig.

If you're willing to spend $70 USD, you can get an Antec Earthwatts 650w, which can power two GTX260s in SLi.


Prices are in USD, and Amazon ships to Canada I believe...

This should also work. its a 500W from silver stone with the same connections and amps on the 12v rail.
