psu for gtx 460 oc sli

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay i decided to not get a dedicated physx card cause my friend is gonna give his card to his lil bro. So I think im going to just buy another gtx 460. Im going to OC both cards at 925/1850/2100ish. I have an i7 950 @ 3.2ghz and i run it on asus p6x58d-e and was wondering if my current OCZ modxstream pro 700W PSU will handle all these components. or should i upgrade my psu as well. and would sli be worth it on a 1600x900 resolution? like no bottleneck or anything. i play mafia 2 and metro 2033 and im pretty sure these will give me a major boost!

ocz psu isn't the best but good for it's value, 700w should be fine.

okay so i wouldnt have to upgrade my psu, but i would have to plug the pcie connectors thru molex since i use both pci on the one gtx 460. and i feel iffy about doing that. I might get an corsair psu. and nothing will bottleneck the gpus right?
