you do know that you won't be able to enable triple sli as the gtx 460 is physically limited to two cards for sli?

I was suspecting this.



op, for three gtx 460, a quality 750w psu would do.

edit: your sig psu is capable.

yes i will be using the 3rd as a phsyx card to run my nvidia 3d as i am waiting for crysis 3 to come out so my thermal toughpower 1000w will handle my q9550 oc and the 3 460's...... i know that these 460s are power hungry and thats why i am asking

460s aren't power hungry at all. 470s and 480s yes, but not 460s.

Would love to see those reviews. I read most of them on the 460's and every single one lauded them as incredibly power efficient.

0,o 460 is one of the more efficient cards in nVidia's Arsenal.
