Enough PSU for a Second Card?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My Specs:

-i7 950 Stock -lowers head in shame- and typical X58 board
-GTX480
-Asus Xense Sound
-(x3) HDD

This is being powered by a Corsair HX850

I am thinking about adding a GTS450 to drive two additional displays I would like to use for desktop real-estate. I could also use this as a Physx card.

Do I have enough to push this? I'm assuming yes but I've never been the best at power requirement calculations.

Thanks!

You've got plenty. The HX850 would even do 480 sli, so you'll have no problems ..
