Max power draw is approximately 400W?

better to stay safe than sorry
recently built a AMD 1090T, GTX 465 with a Coolermaster Extreme Power+ 700w
'n the bloody comp wouldn't boot but it'd boot with my previous OCZ Stealth 600w
so frm past experience get a good 700w PSU with ample AMPs in the rails

That's because the Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 700W is not a 700W unit. It's a piece of ****.

Best to ignore the manufacturer recommendations honestly. 700W is silly. Manufacturers overinflate the requirements based on the assumption that people have garbage PSUs.

That's because Nvidia has to account for crappy PSU manufacturers, like Coolermaster, Apevia, Diablotek, etc, not because these cards will actually draw that much power.

Look at the benchmarks readily available at your local trustworthy tech site.

You'll see for an overclocked Nehalem, 2 overclocked 460s, that power draw is around 450 watts. From the wall. Take into account PSU efficiency and the system is using less than 400 watts.
Examples:

http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforc...-sli-review/15
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...0,2694-10.html

You people with the "better be safe than sorry attitude" are exactly what PSU manufacturers want. Go ahead, buy your 1200 watt monsters for your Core 2 duos and AMD 6850 combos. Don't listen to people that are basing their claims around facts.

Taystew: how about some actual proof for your claims? We've provided plenty..
