Can my psu handle a GTX 560?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering if my psu will be able to handle a MSI GTX 560 and later handle 2 of them if i decide to go 2-way sli. I have a corsair professional hx 850. I'm wondering if it can even take my whole system. Can i get some inputs ? I believe my pc set up is shown below...I'm a complete noob to building pc so im learning as i go.

Your PSU will handle GTX 560 SLI just fine.

You should be good with your HX850 to handle everything in your sig rig and the 2 560'S even if it's OC'D!

Its more than enough for youe 560 sli. Actually you will have quite a bit of extra power left, which you can let me use on my rig I will go get a huge power cable.
Dude, you have bought wayy too much ram. What do you use that pc for?

As long as you only buy quality psu's, an 850w psu can power any dual gpu setup, and a 550w can handle any single gpu setup.

Dual 560's I would imagine would pull about 650-700w with all system components at full load, so your perfectly fine with an 850w.

I do tons of multi-tasking with this pc is basically for school, gaming, entertainment, work...I got heavy applications running like visual studio 2010
